Students at Riverview Elementary School got a visit from some local leaders of the community last week during the new school’s inaugural Celebrity Reader Day.
Throughout the day on May 4, visitors stopped by classrooms at all grade levels to read them selections from their favorite books.
Principal Julia Mashburn said it was cause for celebration.
“Riverview Elementary School is marking firsts this year, and this event was another first we are celebrating,” Mashburn said.
Mashburn added that the event was very successful and had a lot of support from the community.
Added Mashburn: “[It] really focuses on the school’s love of reading.”
