On February 16th , North Clinton Elementary School students and staff joined millions of people from over 100 countries around the world in celebrating “World Read Aloud Day”.  Throughout the day, classes were visited by guest readers from the school board, former teachers, central office staff, members of the community and area celebrities such as DJ Ashley Adams from B97.5 and Matt Hinkin, WATE-TV meteorologist.

 But students also were treated to two of North Clinton’s own who read the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You Hear? by Eric Carle to them by video in a language not usually heard in their classrooms. Ms. Shirley Razote, an instructional assistant in the pre-kindergarten program, in her native Chinese followed by School Resource Officer, Marisol Hernandez in Spanish.
