PICTURES: World Read Aloud Day at Elementary Schools!

February 8, 2023

One of our favorite traditions in Lansingburgh returned on February 1, 2023: World Read Aloud Day! Turnpike Elementary School and Rensselaer Park Elementary School hosted dozens of guest readers between them including elected officials, community business owners, board members, firefighters, Troy Police, Lansingburgh faculty/staff and many more. World Read Aloud Day was founded so people around the world could celebrate reading aloud as a way to advocate for literacy as a human right.

Enjoy pictures from around Turnpike Elementary and Rensselaer Park Elementary during the 2023 World Read Aloud Day below. Thank you to all our many, many guest readers and to our incredible TES & RPES Elementary School Reading Teachers for organizing the day!
