Because we’re reading!


Somerset Elementary students kicked off April with a reading assembly last Friday morning.

The theme for the month is “Because We’re Reading!,” based on the popular “Despicable Me” song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.

The morning began with a video presentation and speech, followed by students going to the rooms of their last year’s teachers for story time. Kindergartners went to fourth-grade classrooms.
