READ ACROSS AMERICA - March 2, 2014
Read Across America is the biggest literary celebration in the U.S., if not the world. Read Across America not only celebrates the joys of reading, but also honors Dr. Seuss' birthday, which is on March 2. Read Across America focuses on the importance of motivating children to read. What a perfect time to bring children and books together.
We will be celebrating Read Across America here at Polk Central Elementary during the week of March 3-7. We have a fun-filled week planned to celebrate this wonderful time with the students here!!!
Lots of fun on "Dress Up As Your Favorite Dr. Seuss Character" Day...even after a 2-hour delay!!!
