The month of March was National Reading Month. It is designed to motivate people of all ages to read every day. Reading regularly has been linked to the development of good mental health throughout our lives. North Cumberland had several special events planned for the month including a dress-up day and all teachers were encouraged to decorate their doors with their favorite book or characters from a book. North also has a Family Reading Night which is done once a month and was held last month on March 19.
