This past Monday, March 3 marked the celebration of Read Across America Day. It’s a reading initiative created by the National Education Association. It is celebrated by libraries, parents, teachers and schools annually. It also coincides with the birthday of none other than Dr. Seuss. As many of you know, Dr. Seuss has written many classic children’s books.
Unfortunately, we were out of school on Monday and Tuesday due to the sleet and ice. We plan to celebrate next week in our Read to Succeed kindergarten program. Volunteers come in to the five elementary schools four days a week to guide the students through the program. The students are doing the reading and working very hard. To celebrate Read Across America Day I think we’ll have the volunteers read to the students. We’ll select a few popular fictional stories with great pictures from the school library. I’m sure they’ll love that.
Reading is fundamental to everything we do in life.
Oh the Places You’ll Go!
Have a great day!
Peace and Blessings,
