The book character parade and second annual Read-A-Thon were part of Barksdale Elementary School's American Education Week celebration and components of the BES Strategic Plan. The day included a book character parade where students and teachers dress up as their favorite book character and parade around the school in front of peers and parents. Every class also had a guest reader come in to read stories to them at the same time. County Office personnel and Barksdale support staff members helped with the reading the event.
