State Senator Chris Larson joined kindergarteners this morning at Kluge Elementary School for this week’s national Read Across America, an initiative started by the National Education Association (NEA). Students enjoyed having a prominent community guest spend time with them reading from the Dr. Seuss classic, “Happy Birthday to You.”

Senator Larson is well known to MTEA members as a strong supporter of public schools, a co sponsor of legislation to build Community Schools and a fierce opponent of the Takeover of MPS.
