Read Across America is a literary celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday on or around March 2nd.

In 2005, CHS students Trey Daugherty and Tabitha Smith visited the new Central Middle School to read to Mrs. Redmon's eight grade english class. Teachers read a variety of books and poems to their respective classes. The day was also celebrated at the monthly Volunteer State Book Breakfast in the library.
