Sharing the joy of reading

March 2, 2012

Photo by Amy Cherry - South St. Marys Street Elementary School teachers Mrs. Meeker and Mrs. Bauer were among the many students and faculty who dressed alike during "Twin Day," held Friday at the school in observance of Read Across America Day. The preschool class at St. Marys Catholic Elementary enjoyed special guest readers on Friday. Students are shown with their teacher, Mrs. Robinson, dressed at the Cat in the Hat.

Friday marked Read Across America Day as students from South St. Marys Street and St. Marys Catholic elementary schools celebrated the annual event, which also coincides with the birthday of famed children's author Dr. Seuss. Today marked his 108th birthday.
At SMCE, students participated in a Read Across America teleconference, during which Monsignor Robert Smith read to the children.
