North Branch students and staff celebrated Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Friday.
The Juniors read 21 Dr. Seuss books in pairs. As a class, they read Fox in Socks and The Cat in the Hat, which was the official 2013 book for the program. The Primary classes also had a Wacky Day (I wish I had a picture of Jessie’s hair)!
This national event involves around 45 million participants. The NEA website states: “The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its 16th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.”
