Read Across America Week
During the week of March 2-6 East Elementary celebrated Read Across America Week, whose purpose is to get kids excited about reading. East Elementary participated with a week-long celebration of Dr. Seuss! Each day our students and staff were encouraged to dress-up to show their love for reading and Dr. Seuss by wearing clothes related to different books he wrote. Some of our favorites were: Crazy Sock Day for Fox in Socks, Wear Green Day for Green Eggs and Ham, and Crazy Hat Day for The 500 Hats of Bartholonew Cubbins.
On Monday, March 2, the students and staff were treated to birthday cake during lunch in honor of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday. On Green Eggs and Ham day, the cafeteria provided green eggs for our students to try....our students were so excited they ate ALL of them! Classes celebrated with different activities as well, and we had great volunteers who donated their time to come read to our students! There was also a week-long reading competition within grade levels to see whose class could read the most books, or the most minutes. As a school, we reached our reading goal of reading 800 books during the week! Way to go, Eagles!
