Annual Read Across America events are celebrated in schools around the country in March. Officially on March 2, it is in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday and a way to encourage and celebrate reading, especially among younger students.
The event is in its 21st year. Typically, it includes Dr. Seuss-themed hats, clothing, guest readers and special lunch menus.
GAPS students will enjoy a special menu on March 2, including Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast and Poodle’s Noodles Macaroni and Cheese for lunch.
Guest readers will host storytime at GAPS elementary schools. This week, Albany firefighters read to GAPS elementary students and OSU student athletes read books to Liberty Elementary students.
