Read Across America


First-graders in the Evergreen Public Schools along with family members enjoy a free breakfast to celebrate Read Across America.  The breakfast is a tradition started many years ago by Mark Matthias, owner of Beaches Restaurant & Bar.  When Matthias first started making the breakfast, he and his volunteers cracked real eggs.  The food is prepared by volunteers in the kitchens at Beaches and the Firstenburg Community Center.  Then volunteers deliver and serve the food to the students and families.

Each first-grade student in the Evergreen Public Schools also receives a book distributed by the Evergreen School District Foundation.

The breakfast intersects with  the National Education Association’s Read Across America Program.
