CONYERS—Gov. Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal kicked off the March “Read Across Georgia” initiative today (March 4) with a visit to Pine Street Elementary School in Conyers.
“We must increase the percentage of children reading well and independently at grade-level because this lays the groundwork for all of their future academic and career endeavors,” said Mrs. Deal. “This past year, I had the opportunity to visit 100 counties and 170 schools emphasizing to parents, teachers and mentors the importance of being proficient in reading. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish during my Read Across Georgia initiative this year.”
