To celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joy of reading (not that we don’t celebrate that every day), we had our 452nd annual Read Across America festivities in the library. We served up hot chocolate, tea, and comfortable seating for High School students to enjoy. For the teachers, we served up Ms. Melinson’s homemade treats, tea, and Mollie made some fancy pour over coffees.
A handful of High School and Middle School teachers brought their classes in throughout the day for projects and quiet reading. We were especially proud of the super-duper-legit fort that Sean constructed for us beforehand. We’re pretty sure he moonlights as a professional fort builder on the weekends. It was such a hit that we decided to leave it up for the rest of the week.
During the All School Read, we encouraged classes to fill out sign-up sheets to let us know what they were reading. We were overwhelmed by their enthusiasm to read and get into the spirit of Read Across America.
