Read Across America Day
Rieck Avenue School honors Dr. Seuss' birthday every year by celebrating Read Across America Day. Held around the beginning of March, our school joins thousands of other schools to help promote literacy and encourage the love of reading in our students.
Our celebration begins with an assembly that kicks off this special day with a guest reader who leads the students in a reader's oath. Other special activites that occur throughout the day include welcoming community readers who share their favorite children stories in classrooms, "Drop Everything And Read" time, and a special appearance by the Cat in the Hat!
Parents are given notice of our school's celebration activities. Teachers welcome parent and guest participation in our reading celebration.
