Read Across America

 Read Across America Week

March 2 - 9 was Read Across America Week at the elementary school.  This year, we started our celebration with our traditional birthday cake for Dr. Seuss, baked by our wonderful cafeteria staff and decorated by Mr. Sims.

We spent the week doing DEAR, or Drop Everything And Read time.  DEAR is a 20 minute block announced at a different time every day, when everyone in the building - faculty, staff, and students - drops whatever they’re doing to read.  Students love this special time when everyone curls up with a good book. 

We also had a home reading challenge, with the students who read the most minutes for the week receiving a Barnes and Noble gift card, courtesy of  APTS.
Congratulations to everyone who participated!
 

The highlight of Read Across America Week had to be our visit from the high school.  This year, Mrs. Gover’s Public Speaking class, as well as some of her Honors English students, came over with books in hand, and read to our students in Kindergarten through third grade.  They did an amazing job sharing wonderful stories with young children, and our students loved spending some time with high school students. Faculty just enjoyed seeing how mature and poised they were with the students, not to mention how they’ve changed!  Thank you again to Mrs. Gover and her wonderful students.

We always enjoy Read Across America Week.  While reading is a critical skill, it’s also a wonderful way to spend your time, and this week helps us refocus on how something so important can also be fun!
