Schools Celebrate ‘Read Across America Day’
Educators believe that every day is a good day to read, but last Wednesday, the community, in fact the whole nation, took it to a higher level.
March 2nd is the birthday of Theodor Geisel, known to most of us as Dr. Seuss, and every year his birth is celebrated as Read Across America Day. It’s a day to dress up in Dr. Seuss characters, grab your favorite book and share the joy of reading.
All across Westminster Public Schools, volunteer readers came into school buildings to share their favorite stories with students and reinforce the importance of literacy and how fun reading can be.
Superintendent Pam Swanson visited several schools during the course of the day reading the Three Little Javelinas, a variation on the classic Three Little Pigs.
