VERNON – State Representative Tim Ackert (R-8) celebrated Read Across America Day as a guest reader at Lake Street School reading “Miss Rumphius” by Barbara Cooney to Mrs. Guillet’s and Mrs. Schipper’s fifth grade classes.
“It was an honor to be a guest reader at Lake Street School. Read Across America is a truly special opportunity to inspire a life-long love of reading and learning. As a parent and now grandparent I have enjoyed reading to my own kids and grandkids, I challenged these students to show off their skills by reading to their own parents and grandparents,” said Rep. Ackert. “It was also a pleasure to answer questions about my role as State Representative and give a few practical examples about how laws are made and the three branches of state government.”
