Clyattville - It's time to read for 2005 seconds.

Students from Clyattville Elementary School are taking part in the Read for 2005 program.

This annual event encourages students to read more and teaches them the importance of reading.

They also learned how reading is used in all areas of education.

All of the students read for 2005 seconds-- which is over 33 minutes.

"Reading is not just reading. You can learn about the world. You can apply it to math skills and to teach them that reading is going to be important through out their life," said their teacher Lynn Tessin.

After reading for 2005 seconds, the students put down their books, and listened as State Senator Tim Golden read "Polar Express" to them.
