R.N. Fickett Elementary celebrated Read Across America with a salute to Dr. Seuss’s literature for the entire week. Students were greeted as they entered Fickett’s foyer last week by the mischievous Cat in the Hat mascot (Gail Broughton), parent volunteer; the lovable pair, Thing One (Mrs. Sweetie) and Thing Two (Mrs. Parks), parent volunteers; as well as a beautifully decorated theme hall, media center, and cafeteria portraying Dr. Seuss ‘s characters and humorous quotes and poems.
During the week, Fickett Principal Dr. Anthony Dorsey observed The Cat in the Hat mascot providing reading, science, and math lessons via the famous story “Green Eggs and Ham,” along with preparing the actual dish to depict the story and relating the story to real life applications.
Target Volunteers came together with Beecher Hills Elementary on Tuesday to help the students celebrate Read Across America Day. The volunteers read to pre-kindergarten through third-grade classes. One class was selected for a video contest to receive a Dr. Seuss book for each student. In addition to the Target Volunteers, popular Seuss character The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2 visited the school.
Some photos you just have to share because they’re so fun, and that’s definitely the case with Burgess-Peterson Academy Principal Robin Robbins. Here we have her sharing images of her reading a little Dr. Seuss — I Can Read with My Eyes Shut! — to kindergarten through second-graders in celebration of Dr. Seuss Day at the school. The event, part of the Read Across America Week festivities, honored the children’s book honor on his birthday. The students had to wear pajamas to school, Principal Robbins tells us, partly to walk in a parade on Tuesday.
Thanks, Burgess-Peterson, and keep ‘em coming. And how well is Principal Robbins rocking that Dr. Seuss hat?!
