The second annual Read Under the Stars event will be held at Cardinal Stadium on Tuesday, Nov. 28. Families are invited to bring a book and a flashlight and read under the Melissa stars between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Families can bring in flashlights, blankets and sleeping bags, along with their books. Each reader will receive a free glow-in-the-dark bracelet upon entering Cardinal Stadium.
Coaches and teachers will be monitoring the gate and the field. No food or drinks will be allowed on the field and must be discarded at the gate. Reading will take place on the field area only.
Read Under the Stars is part of the Melissa Schools #Read2Grow reading initiative, as well as the “Scholastic Western Wonderland” book fair at Melissa Ridge Intermediate and Melissa Middle School, which will run from Nov. 27 through Dec. 1.
