Elliott Point ES Students Celebrate Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day
Elliott Point Elementary School students joined millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Monday, March 2, 2020.
Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss Day, is a yearly observance in the United States inaugurated by the NEA. It is held on the school day that is nearest to 2 March, Dr Seuss birthday. Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American artist, book publisher, animator, poet, a political cartoonist as well as an author. He is best known for authoring over 60 children’s books.
“We had a Seussical time celebrating Read Across America Day,” said Elliott Elementary School Point Principal, Kathy Ard. “Thank you to all our wonderful readers that came to share stories with our students.”
The NEA’s goal is to show America’s children the joy of reading and build a nation of readers—on March 2nd and every day. We will use books that reflect everyone in the community to help students discover their own voices and learn from the voices of others.
