Dr. Seuss Week!

We are going to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday the week of March 4th - 8th and we wanted you to have a schedule of events so your child/children will be able to participate as much as they like.  Reading is an important skill, so we encourage you to read each night as a family.

Monday - The week starts off with an "ALL SCHOOL READING" session at 9:00 am.  Everyone will go into the halls and read silently for 15 minutes.  Kindergarten will hear "One Fish Two Fish" from a special guest!

Tuesday - The 3rd grade class will have a special reading of "Green Eggs and Ham".  Dr. Yennie will be reading to some of our 4th and 5th graders.

WACKY WEDNESDAY - "Foxy Socks Day" - Be creative with your clothes - especially your socks.  A special guest will be reading "The Cat in the Hat" to the 1st and 2nd grades.

Thursday - Dr. Timbs will be reading to the 5th graders.

Friday - GRINCHY GREEN DAY - Wear your Grinchiest green to school.  Tony Shipley will be reading to the 4th graders.  At 2:30, the entire school will sing Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss and eat mini cupcakes!

We will also have art projects coordinating with our books for each grade level.  Thank you Ms. Sara!  The 3rd through 5th grades will be designing a poster to go with the book "The Lorax".  We will have a special judge to pick the winners.  First place wins an ice cream party, second place wins lunch in their room, and third place wins popcorn in their room.

Next week we will continue the reading theme with the Book Fair.
