2012 Dr. Seuss Day a Success!

Our annual celebration of Read Across America (Dr. Seuss's Birthday) was another success!  Our third grade readers performed readers theatre to a "packed" audience in the library. Guest parent readers were enjoyed by classes throughout the day.  To wrap up our celebration, members of our faculty and staff performed a readers' theater skit titled "SouperChicken" adapted by Mrs. Eley from the picture book by Mary Jane Auch.  A special "Thank you" goes to Mrs. Christiance's first grade class for performing a country dance to the song "Ice Cream Freeze" (taught by school secretary Mrs. Hayden) at our assembly!

Here are some pictures from the day! Enjoy!
