Many administrative and non-classroom staff have volunteered to read to entire classes and small groups, including Principal Michael Courtwright.
Forest Park Elementary School in Kannapolis will hold its third annual Family Reading Night Tuesday, Jan. 28 from 6 to 7 p.m.
Shady Brook Elementary Principal Dr. Rachel Zaionz will perform, families will read together and students will leave with a new book and prizes.
