Reading Day

Students spent the day as their favorite book characters while they read with UNC student-athletes.

Morris Grove Elementary participated in its first-ever #grababook Day last week. The day is designed to build students’ reading stamina and promote a love of reading. Students dressed up as their favorite characters and read with UNC’s student-athletes.
