Reading in Sycamore

Why is reading good for you? Reading is good for you because it improves your focus, memory, empathy, and communication skills. It can reduce stress, improve your mental health, and help you live longer. Reading also allows you to learn new things to help you succeed in your work and relationships, so it is something we really want to continue to encourage in class. Look out for our ‘Book Flicks’ reading initiative.
