Tuesday (1st): Crazy Hat/Hair Day: wear your crazy Seuss hat, Seuss up your hair, or just come up with something crazy of your own!
Wednesday (2nd): In celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday, it's DRESS AS YOUR FAVORITE SEUSS CHARACTER DAY! To celebrate all who dress up and to show off our Seussy attitudes, we'll be parading around the school with our costumes! More details below!
Thursday (3rd): Wear Your Grinchiest Green!
Friday (4th): Relax like a llama in your pajamas!
*Of course, be sure to read more about Dr. Seuss and other favorite authors in your classroom read aloud during the week! There are some great authors out there who have been inspired by Dr. Seuss or reflect his zaniness in their own work: Shel Silverstein, Jerry Spinelli, Dan Gutman, Jim Benton, Bill Martin, Eric Carle, and more! Not sure what to read? Stop by the library and get inspired by one of the books in our window display!

Super Special Parade News!
At 2:20 on Wednesday, March 2nd, we'll be calling all students who dressed up to participate in our parade! Students will report to the library. At 2:30, everyone is invited to cheer on our participants outside their classroom as we parade by!
Each grade level is a team. Each team needs to track how many pages it reads each day. This includes independent reading, reading groups, and read alouds! Each student reader counts! Send an update each afternoon to Chrissy Youel and we'll update the board in the hallway outside the teacher workroom. Let's see who can race to the finish first!
PreK/Specials Team: Johnson, Peach, Cordone, Ruggles, Bright, Morrett
The race starts on February 29th! Are you ready?
