It has been a busy few weeks!

The month of March has traditionally been a busy month in the Reading Public Schools, especially at the High School level.  The last few weeks have been extremely busy.  This is a testament to the dedication of our students, staff, and parents to provide the most engaging opportunities and experiences that helps support our mission.
