Celebrating Read Across America


On Friday, after many postponements, our K-5 students were treated to an assembly to celebrate reading and Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  This is the 20th anniversary of Read Across America Day, a very special day for schools across the nation, in which community members and dignitaries  develop activities to bring reading excitement to children of all ages. 
At SCS, we added a new theme this year: “Celebrating a Nation of Diverse Readers.” Our "Suess Team", consisting of Jensa Bushey, Natalie Lodge, Jenn Niles, Nancy Nakhleh, and Shannon Baird, purchased picture books for each PK-5 classroom that highlights diversity in some way.  We will be using these books for a community art project.  Posters created by each class will be displayed this week.

Guess who came to visit and help us distribute our books to each classroom?

Each class was asked to create hats to honor one of their favorite Dr. Seuss books

The paper bag hats were awesome!
