On Wednesday, March 2nd, Midlothian High School students and teachers, as well as people across the nation, pulled out their favorite books and set aside time to read. During Midlo Morning, the entire school stopped what they were doing and silently read for thirty minutes. The administrators walked around the school and joined in on the reading with many of the students.

Students read a variety of  types of books, ranging from a book of poetry to nonfiction. Junior Elli Perkins grabbed her favorite book filled with poems by all of the greats. She decided to pick this book because she said, “I have always enjoyed poetry, and I wanted to read this book.” The majority of students pulled out a book they were reading for one of their classes. Also planned for the day was a Dr. Seuss Day event in the Midlo Library, geared toward preschool children. All in all, Read Across America Day found MHS a willing participant.
