Montgomery C. Smith Elementary School students are thrilled to have the Hudson Reads “Literacy at Lunch” program back this school year! Thank you to our amazing community members for taking time out of their day to build connections and read with our youth!

The mission of the Hudson Reads “Literacy at Lunch” program is to promote children’s literacy and a love of learning through paired reading experiences with caring individuals. Becoming one of our Reading Mentors is how you as a community member can help promote the literacy of our students, an ongoing goal.
