Dr. Maya Angelou Day of Reading

As a district and a school, Peck Elem got the opportunity to participate in the Dr. Maya Angelou Day of Reading on April 8th and 9th 2021.  This was a time where we get to celebrate the world-renowned reach of Dr. Maya Angelou's voice as a writer, teacher, and advocate for universal literacy. GCS, also had a surprise video shared with us from Oprah Winfrey, who read Dr. Maya Angelou’s poem Continue, which was written for Ms. Winfrey 50th birthday in 2004. Students also reviewed and studied the poem and discussed what the poem meant to them.
