Read Across America Week  


Our 2019 Read Across America Week will be February 25th - March 1st, 2019.


HIghlights this week will be our dress up days, Dr. Seuss Trivia contest in the morning, our author visit of Dar James and we will have buddy reading with some first, second and third grade classes. 



We were lucky to have our guest author visit with Nick Bruel in the Media Center on June 1, 2015 as well as plenty of other fun activities and dress-up days.  We had guest readers come into every classroom to read to the students.  These guest readers came from the Fernwood Avenue Middle School National Junior Honor Society and all of our students loved having them.  I want to thank all the students and faculty in making this week a success!




  It's Wacky Wednesday dress up day for teachers too!

The National Education Association (NEA) annually sponsors Read Across America.  The NEA’s Read Across America focuses the country’s attention on how important it is to motivate children to read in addition to helping them master basic skills.  The nationwide reading celebration takes place each year on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss, who epitomizes a love of learning.
