Dr. Seuss & Read Across America Day

Well…we did it.  Even with rain, wind, cold weather, and some snow flakes, guest readers visited Barrow Elementary and read Dr. Seuss books to every classroom in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

This morning the media center was packed.  We had members of the community as well as a huge support from Sigma Phi Epsilon.  Readers enjoyed some conversation and refreshment and were escorted by student ambassadors to classrooms.  Readers shared stories with the classes and had good conversation about books and reading.

At 8:15, all of PreK came to the media center to hear a special program done by Lorraine Holahan from the Athens Regional Library.  Students heard stories, sang songs, helped tell stories, and saw puppets.

At 10:00, Beth Friese’s class from UGA, visited and read books to individual students, small groups, and whole classes.  It was a day packed with reading.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this successful, especially Ms. Olin who did all of the scheduling and had to be out sick today!
