Grab Your Hat and Read with the Cat! Celebrate NEA’s Read Across America Day

National Education Association is celebrating their annual observance of NEA’s Read Across America. NEA is calling America’s children, both young and old, to reward their learning by celebrating the joys of reading on Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Readers of all ages are encouraged to celebrate with this year’s book What Pet Should I Get!

Lewis and Clark is asking on March 2, 2016, for parent volunteers to read What Pet Should I Get? Please notify your child’s teacher if you would like to read to a classroom. We are asking students to dress up as their favorite Dr. Seuss book character on March 2nd.  We look forward to this celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  

If you are interested in reading on March 2nd, please fill out and return the Volunteer Form by February 19, 2016 to your child’s classroom teacher. Once I have all volunteer information, I will contact you with a specific time and classroom that you will be reading to.

The newspaper will be distributed to residents. In order to make this possible, we are looking for sponsors to help defray the cost. Please contact Megan Harris or Courtney Lander at Lewis and Clark Elementary if you would like to become a sponsor. There are also limited spaces available to purchase for business advertisements.  Thank you for your support!
