Students at Lexington Elementary will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the sixteenth annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day starting on Monday, March 2, 2015. Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading, expects more than 45 million readers, both young and old, to pick up a book and read.
On Monday the Learning Commons will host a Read-A-Thon where classes and students may come and read or be read to. We are looking for volunteers to be some of our guest readers throughout the day. Also during the day will be fun Seuss activity stations. Finally, we are also honoring Dr. Seuss by dressing up like some of his well-known books. We encourage all students, teachers, and staff to participate in the fun.
Monday – Dress like The Cat in the Hat by wearing RED, WHITE and BLACK.
Tuesday – Show us your craziest socks in honor of Fox in Socks!
Wednesday – It’s Wacky Wednesday, wear your wackiest clothes and hair!
Thursday – Wear GREEN for Green Eggs and Ham and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Friday – Crazy Hat Day in honor of the The Cat in the Hat Comes Back and The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.
