A celebration of reading
Reading and everything Dr. Seuss were celebrated as Mountain View took part in Read Across America – a nationwide campaign designed to motivate kids to read. Sponsored by the National Education Association, Read Across America is held annually on the birthday of the legendary children's author.
On that special day, parents, grandparents, Mount Olive police officers, board of education members, and administrators visited to read to classes, and students and staff donned their best Seussian attire.
Paul Czekaj, a singer and songwriter, kicked off the day’s festivities by singing his original song, “Reading's Lots of Fun.” His visit has become an annual RAA Day tradition.
Melissa Marvin, Mountain View’s library media specialist, coordinated the day's activities.
