NIE week begins

From Staff Reports

   Across the nation, school children will be participating in events celebrating the role of newspapers in education.
   National Newspaper in Education week will be observed this year March 1-5.
   The theme for this year's event is "Just Think! Higher-level Thinking Skills."
   Many of the events students will participate in this year will be sponsored by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) Foundation.
   The goal of NIE Week is to reinforce positive, lifetime reading habits by engaging students with an authentic text - the newspaper.
