Read Across America


To celebrate the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss, students participated in Read Across America (an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2). This program motivates children to become lifelong learners, and to cherish reading. Our student council visited the Kindergarten and first grade to read the works of Dr. Seuss to pass on the joy of reading.
