Read Across America
Friday, March 6, 2015:
The best way to honor a beloved children’s author on his birthday is by having a weeklong celebration. Selma Avenue Elementary School celebrated the 18th annual Read Across America Day this Friday to mark the 111th birthday of Dr.Seuss. Read Across America Day is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading. This year, we extended it to a weeklong celebration with featured Dr.Seuss Spirit Week (March 2 - March 6). Various of our activities are planned around Dr. Seuss’ contribution to reading, but the celebration is really all about the importance of reading.
