Through the South Country School District’s Clipper Literacy Leaders initiative, high school English language arts students visited Frank P. Long Intermediate School to read to students on Feb. 27.

The students read “Firebird” by Misty Copeland. The book ties in with Black History Month and the district’s social and emotional learning curriculum. Following the read-aloud, the high school students spearheaded a discussion on the themes in the book.

The Clipper Literacy Leaders, which kicked off earlier this school year, aims to create connections between high school and younger students and promote literacy and a love of reading. Each month, the Leaders visit a district school to read books that tie into the district’s social and emotional learning curriculum and connect with cultural/identity celebrations.
