Students at Pierpont School celebrated the 116th birthday of the author of children’s books with a program called Read Across America. Read Across America was launched by the National Education Association in 1998 and coincides with the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel.
Educators and students took part in the book event with an assembly and activities to an auditorium full of students.
Jennifer Loudermilk Jennifer organizer and coordinator of this program stated “We love to read at Pierpont!! We hold our annual Book Exchange this day to help share the love of reading! Students bring a book to share and get to go home with a different book. All classrooms participate and this year was especially special because we have a new courtyard which offered a wonderful place for the students to sit and read their books! This year we also held two assemblies with our third-grade teacher Scott Lancet in full Cat In The Hat costume. At each assembly Mr. Lancet presented a power point presentation of Horton Hears a Who while the story was read allowed by our teachers. It was a great day and another wonderful example of just how important it is to read! it is to read.”
