Dr. Seuss once said, “You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” March 2nd is a day of celebrating for DCC’s elementary students as it was both National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss Day so there were lots of exciting activities for the kids. National Read Across America Day is celebrated by numerous schools throughout the country. It was originally created by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1998. Its goal is to get children across the country enthusiastic about reading. It is particularly fitting that the day falls on the famous and beloved author, Dr. Seuss’s, birthday.

Kindergarten ate green eggs and ham, Mrs. Bernat, the elementary principal read Dr. Seuss books to the first graders, and many other teachers spent their class time reading to their students. The day was exciting for all of the elementary students and it unquestionably got the students excited about reading.
