St. Veronica Celebrates “Read Across America”

Read Across America Week

St. Veronica Catholic School celebrated “Read Across America” this week with a number of fun activities. The nationwide celebration of reading takes place annually on March 2 – which is the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss.

Staying on theme, the fun kicked-off on Monday with Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Red and white striped hats were spotted all over the lower school and prekindergarten classes.

On Wednesday, the annual parade of book characters throughout the lower school. From PreK3 to 2nd grade, students dressed as their favorite character and paraded through the classrooms while holding a copy of their book. Among the preK and K set the familiar Dr. Seuss characters were well represented: Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Horton, Whos and more! But among the older kids there was a plethora of Greg Heffleys and Harry Potters.

Reading buddies met up with each other after lunch. Big kids reading to their little buddies inspires the little ones to read and encourages the big kids to be good reading examples. Even cuter though, is when the little kids read to their big buddies.

After a busy day of reading and celebrating reading, the children attended a LASER reading assembly. Through moving LASER images and exciting music, the kids learned actual tips and tricks to being a better reader. What a great way to end a fun “Read Across America” celebration day!
