Read Across America Fun at Rodgers

J. Harvey Rodgers School celebrated Read Across America with dress up theme days, opportunities to snuggle up with good books and favorite stuffed annimals, caught you reading rewards, Dr. Seuss trivia, classroom door decorating and creative photo contests.

The dress up theme days inspired a sense of school spirit for Read Across America. Themes included Read My Shirt Day, Red and White Day, Crazy Hair/Hat Day, Wacky Wednesday (with clothes that were inside out or backwards), Wear Your “Grinchiest” Green, and Snuggle Up with a Good Book (in pajamas).

Rodgers' celebration didn't stop there! Author Traci Dunham stopped by to read her children's books, and School Resource Officer Ray Giordano read to the entire school!

Each pre-k class paired up with a kindergarten class to read and create bookmarks about a favorite book.

Classes also made hats featuring students' favorite Dr. Seuss characters.
