Read Across America, begun in 1997, is a day set to celebrate reading. It is celebrated each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. This year members of the High School National Honor Society were our guest readers. Seth, Eli, Jordan H, Joey, Whitney, Kat, Jenn, Nate, and Kolter shared books and activities related to Dr. Seuss books with the preschool and elementary students.
The Little Hawks Book Bags reached a milestone this month. Aubrey Anderson, the daughter of Matt and Jessie Anderson, was the first to have 500 books read to her. She was recognized at a special presentation during Read Across America.
Little Hawks Book Bag program started in October 2012 with a goal to have all preschoolers be read 500 books by the time they start kindergarten. Book bags were purchased through a generous donation by Security First Bank. The books were labelled and bags filled by Ms. Bila and the National Honor Society.
