BONNERS FERRY, Idaho, Jan. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 140 students, families, and friends of Mount Hall Elementary School will gather for a special reading event in celebration of National School Choice Week.
Families are invited to Mount Hall Elementary to read with their children at 3:15 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24.
