Read Across America Day in NECSD! | Photos and Videos
Schools throughout the Newburgh Enlarged City School District celebrated Read Across America day by welcoming more than 120 volunteer readers into our elementary schools!
We were excited to welcome older students, parents/guardians, alumni, business owners, community members, distinguished guests and more! The district also welcomed celebrity and New York Times bestselling author, Linsey Davis. Linsey Davis is currently an anchor for ABC News Live Prime, which is ABC News Live’s first-ever streaming evening newscast, and weekend “World News Tonight” on Sundays. She is a correspondent filing reports for “World News Tonight,” “Good Morning America,” “20/20” and “Nightline.”
Davis read her newest release, “The Smallest Spot of a Dot” (January 2023) to students in Kindergarten and 1st grade.
Davis’ five children’s books, “The Smallest Spot of a Dot” (January 2023), “How High is Heaven” (February 2022), “The World is Awake” (February 2019), “One Big Heart” (August 2019) and “Stay This Way Forever” (February 2021) have all become bestsellers. Davis earned her undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Virginia and a Master of Arts degree in communications from New York University.
Distinguished guests included, but wasn't limited to NECSD Board of Education members Philip Howard and Mark Levinstein, Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson, Honorable Joanne Matthews Forbes, Honorable Anika Muhammad, Councilwoman Sylvia Santiago, County Legislator Genesis Ramos, City of Newburgh Poet Laureate Genie Abrams, and Inaudy Esposito, Executive Director of Orange County’s Human Rights Commission.
