PAES Celebrate "Read Across America Day"
“Read Across America Day” is an annual reading program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2nd. Every year at the beginning of March, children across the country kick-off the month by celebrating the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss and the many characters that have been immortalized in his children’s books. It’s a day to bring awareness to the importance of reading in education and helps to motivate kids to read more.
Check out these fun ways students and staff are celebrating reading throughout the week in the elementary school:
Monday: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (wear head-to-to Christmas)
Tuesday: Cat in the Hat Day (wear a hat)
Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday (wear wacky or mismatched clothes)
Thursday: If I Ran the Zoo (bring your favorite stuffed animal)
Friday: The Sleep Book (wear pajamas)
See more videos posted on the Elementary School page.
A special thank you to the PTO for providing Dr. Seuss treats to all students this week. Thank you PTO!
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child!”- Dr. Seuss
