The students of Holy Rosary School celebrated Read Across America Week from February 25-March 1. This nationwide event celebrates Dr. Seuss and the joy of reading. On Monday, many of the students and teachers came to school dressed as their favorite literary character. On Tuesday we paid tribute to one of Dr. Seuss’ lesser known books, My Many Colored Days. Students were allowed to wear one colorful accessory with their uniform. The cafeteria served a very colorful and delicious lunch. In the book, Wacky Wednesday, wacky things occur on every page. On Wednesday, the students were encouraged to come to school dressed wacky. Many students had a great time wearing their clothes backwards, wearing pants on their head and we even had a brother and sister who swapped uniforms. That one made me do a double take! Once again the ladies in the cafeteria joined in the fun serving hamburgers on hotdog buns, different shaped fries all mixed together and salad with popcorn instead of dressing! The main hall had many wacky things going on. There was a fireplace with Santa, Christmas music playing, a milk jug pouring ‘milk’ into a cup, one teacher was turned into a butterfly and another teacher was turned into Captain Underpants! Twice during the day, the students were interrupted by an announcement over the intercom instructing them to put down their pencils and get up and boogie. These music dance breaks were a great hit with the students. Thursday was our Library Fun Night and used book sale. I was dressed as Miss Viola Swamp, Coach Olswing was a Creepy Carrot, Mrs. Paduck was dressed as Peppa Pig and Mrs. Gardino was Cookie Monster. We all spent the first part of the afternoon reading our stories to the children. There were games for the children such as Ring the Gack, tic-tac-toe with green eggs and ham instead of X’s and O’s and a Fox in Socks game where students competed to see who could match the most pairs of socks. There were so many wonderful books that were donated for the sale. I would like to thank everyone who donated books. So many people got some really great books at awesome prices. Friday was Fox in Socks day. Students could wear crazy socks with their uniform. Throughout the week we had DEAR time. When the students heard a bell ring over the intercom they knew it was time to Drop Everything And Read. This year the search for Who-ville was a fun addition. It’s hard to explain how crazy the search was, so ask your child about the literary clues that led them to Who-ville. Students that found the ever moving Who-ville were given a Truffula Tree pen donated by the Mothers’ Club. The week was great fun for everyone.
