One of our favorite weeks of the year is the week we celebrate Read Across America. It's a week that's all about reading, fun, silliness, community and of course, Dr. Seuss.
Here is what our week looked like
Day 1 (Kick-Off):
|The week started with Kick-Off Assemblies|
|Students shared facts about Dr. Seuss|
We sang the Read Across America song students learned in music class*video credit:Marie Pendergast
|Everyone recited The Reader's Oath written by Debra Angstead|
Day 2 (Community Readers):
Our super Superintendent, Dr. Jeffrey Marsden
Awesome reader, Nat Vaughn, Blake Middle School Principal
An annual favorite, Robert Parga, Medfield High School Principal
|Jim James, owner of Medfield's fabulous Park Street Books|
|We are so fortunate that Police Chief Meany comes in the morning and in the afternoon each year!|
There were many, many more readers from our wonderful community. Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy day to read to our students.
Day 3 Crazy (Fox in Socks) Sock Day:
|We sure had some CRAZY socks! |
