WSS Read Across America

March 2, 2021 -- As students and staff in the district's 12 elementary schools transitioned to 4 half days of learning for all students this week, there were many fun activities, special story times, and dress up days planned around Read Across America Day. The national event encourages people of all ages to read and specifically focuses on the importance of reading for young people. Traditionally, it is also a celebration of the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss whose birthday coincides with the day each year.

It's a day that's meant to get kids excited about reading and from the looks of the photos below, our students were happy to join in the festivities!
