As part of Tuscan School’s Read Across America Week celebration, The Cat in the Hat visited with students in kindergarten through grade two on February 27th. Tuscan School was selected to receive a visit from “The Cat” by the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA). Students were thrilled to meet one of their favorite characters from a Dr. Suess book in person. “The Cat” posed with students, teachers, and even Vice Principal, Mr. Kevin Mason.
Throughout the week, students were encouraged to participate in activities for Read Across America Week. On Monday, students wore crazy hats and on Tuesday they wore mismatched socks. Wednesday, students dressed in red and white striped clothing, just like The Cat in the Hat and on Thursday, students were invited to dress in pajamas. Friday, to display school spirit, students and faculty will wear clothing that is blue and/or yellow (Tuscan’s school colors). Many parents are also visiting classrooms and library classes to read Dr. Seuss books. Read Across America Week is a wonderful opportunity for students to celebrate Dr. Seuss, reading and books.
