Sheriff Mike Tregre had the pleasure of participating in the St. John Early Childhood Education Department’s Read Across America Virtual Program held March 2, 2021 in observance of the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
Due to COVID-19, the Early Childhood Education Department decided to present a virtual reading program this year. Through a Zoom meeting, Sheriff Tregre was able to read to 19 different Head Start and pre-kindergarten classes at LaPlace Elementary, Lake Pontchartrain, Garyville Magnet, Emily C. Watkins, and West St. John Elementary.
Sheriff Tregre read “Delilah’s Delightful Dream,” a story about cooperation and teamwork. For 18 years Sheriff Tregre has been a guest reader for Read Across America events at local schools, and he has always stressed to students that the more they read, the smarter they will become. Participating in Read Across America always makes for a great day at work, Sheriff Tregre said.
