Dr. Seuss' Birthday

March 3rd is Read Across America, a holiday celebrating reading! It also happens to coincide with Theodor Suess Geisel's birthday!

Dr. Seuss is a special favorite of Mrs. Fournier because she is currently serving on the Geisel Book Award Committee, choosing the best book for newly independent readers published in 2010.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America, we had a Seuss-a-thon here in the library. Readers from our school volunteered to keep Dr. Suess going all day long. Readers included Mrs. Lajaunie from the office, Ms. Barbara the lunch monitor, Principal Jacobs, Assistant Principal Decker, and Ms. Potral from P.E. We had a blast reading to each class.

Mrs. Rhea, Mrs. Fournier and Mrs. Meyer pretended to be Thing #1, the Cat in the Hat and Thing #2.

To make the celebration extra special, we encouraged students and faculty to dress up in their Suessiest gear with stripes, polka dots and any other related items.

Mrs. Fournier and Mrs. Perkins, the star-bellied sneech!

We had a great time reading and loving books together. For more information about Read Aross America, check out
