Students and parents at Ellison Park Elementary came to school early this week to read their favorite books together as part of the Road to Success program.
Students who've read consistently for the past seven weeks got to pick out a book. The program hopes to get kids interested in reading.
"And it we can get parents to read with their children after school at home at night, it makes our job a lot easier as teachers," said Charles Johnson, principal at Ellison Park Elementary.
