Read Across America: Hop on Pop Day!

What a wonderful time students had reading with special "Pops" and Dads. We truly appreciate the effort you made to come into our classroom. I must use this quote from Dr. Seuss as I think it perfectly portrays how we felt about the afternoon: “You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” Thank you for being reading role models to your children. Enjoy all the pictures below!
