Schools celebrate Dr. Seuss
Schools throughout Sumter School District celebrated Dr. Seuss’ 100th birthday in observance of Read Across America Day. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books. This annual recognition is our nation's largest reading event, and our schools were proud to be a part of this celebration!
Kingsbury Elementary kicked off the day with a special guest appearance by Superintendent J. Frank Baker on the Morning Show. He commended the children for their love of reading and read a book to the entire school. Throughout the day, local celebrities read to the children in the media center’s story telling room. After hearing a variety of Dr. Seuss tales, the children signed the Reader’s Pledge, promising to be life-long readers. The children loved the read alouds and the numerous activities that filled the classrooms in this day-long celebration of reading and of an author who single-handedly encouraged generations of children to embrace reading and literacy!
