Sylvan Learning Center of F.C. Offers Free Reading Events

Sylvan Learning Center of Falls Church invites the community to nominate local school classrooms for a free reading event hosted by the center throughout the entire month of March in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The center will host a fun reading event in the nominated classroom for the students and invite them to take a reading pledge.

The goal of the the National Education Association, the organization promoting March as National Reading Month, is to have every child in North America reading this month in support of Read Across America and Dr. Seuss, who was born in March. “Read Across America provides an ideal chance for parents, teachers and staff to introduce reading as the enjoyable, entertaining activity that it can be,” said Matt Weiske, center director at Sylvan Learning Center of Falls Church.

“In addition, studies have shown that the more reading a child does at home, the more it enhances that child’s performance at school.” For more information or to nominate a classroom, e-mail Matt Weiske at
