What is Read Across America Day? Read Across America Day is an annual reading motivation and awareness programthat calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on Dr.Seuss's birthday March 2nd.
What happens on Read Across America Day?The students of Heights Elementary School celebrate by dressing up as theirfavorite storybook characters. We invite guest readers from the SharonCommunity to come in and read a story to each class.
Some of the people who read aloud to the students are our schooladministrative assistants, principals, family members of teachers, Senators,State Representatives, former teachers, police officers, our superintendent,and school and youth campaign coordinator for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.This year we have some new activities for all students to participate in. Also, someHeights students will read excerpts from Dr. Seuss books throughout the day.So, start thinking of your costumes! We can't wait to see you all dressed up!
