Elementary students had a colorful Read Across America celebration in the school library for the annual recognition of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Organized by librarian Ms. Selinda Stout, students and staff were encouraged to wear striped socks and crazy hats. Dr. Seuss coloring books and other activities were available, and The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch were on hand to greet students and hand out tokens for the school’s book vending machine. The highlight of the day was students at all grade levels who served as guest readers and read aloud their favorite stories to their classmates. They were Timothy Amadio, Lina Awadallah, Allie Blumenthal, Adrian Diaz, Avery Eisaman and Sophie Franck. Leading up to the event, students participated in a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses such as Applebee’s, Kilwins Chocolate Shop, Panera, Port Jeff Bowl and Roger’s Frigate. Ms. Stout thanked each reader and complimented their abilities in reading aloud to their peers in the school’s efforts to promote independent reading.
