Did you know that March 2nd was Read Across America Day, a day dedicated to celebrate reading and the joy of books?! And, of course, it was also Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which is always cause for celebration. The day was established by the National Education Association (NEA) and has been celebrated in schools and libraries across the United States since 1998.
Our Catholic Elementary Schools on Long Island celebrated Read Across America Day with reading parties and other fun activities this week. Kiddos were thrilled to dive into their favorite Dr. Seuss books together, and share in the joy and love of reading. Take a look below!
