Monday, March 2nd is the day we celebrated “Read Across America” and the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Read Across America is an initiative to encourage reading that was created by the National Education Association, it began in 1997. It is always held on the school day closest to March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. To celebrate, staff and students took time to “Drop Everything And Read”. Many classrooms took at least last 15 minutes at various times throughout the day to spend time quietly reading. It is important for adults to model reading for students. This is a great way to support reading and build a culture of readers.
