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.
