Read Across America Day/Dr. Seuss Birthday: Wednesday, March 2 was National Read Across America Day. Read Across America day is a day to celebrate the privilege of being able to read. It is also Dr. Seuss' birthday. We had such fun celebrations going on throughout the school and classrooms! Students wore pajamas or dressed up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character and the Cat in The Hat made an appearance in each class and delivered a little prize for each student.
