During the week of February 27th-March 3rd, representatives from law enforcement, television news, business, local, county and state government, and a variety of other fields, took time out of their busy schedules to visit with G.C. Hartman Elementary students as part of a national effort to promote literacy among all children. This year's Read Across America marked the 20th anniversary of the annual event, which is the nation's largest reading celebration. More than 45 million students, parents, educators and others participate every year. Many thanks are extended to our guest readers and to 4th Grade teacher, Mrs. Andreia Walshaw, who coordinated this event at G.C. Hartman Elementary!
 
Among the guest readers who helped promote a love of reading among G.C. Hartman students, was Brian Knoebel, Manager of Knoebels Amusement Resort.
