Thursday, March 2

This is the official Read Across America Day as it is the day Theodore Seuss Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) was born. We celebrated his birthday in a BIG way. Lots of wonderful people from the Medfield community came in to read to our students. It's hard to know who had more fun - the students or the readers!

A very, very special guest greeted all the kids as they arrived at school in the morning. What a fun way to end our week of celebrating all things Dr. Seuss!

Thank you's all around!

This fun week would not have happened without a lot of help.

  • Thanks to our wonderful staff for supporting and participating in this literacy program with such enthusiasm.
  • Big thanks to Rob Skloff for dressing up as The Cat in the Hat - the kids loved your visit!
  • And a very special thank you to an amazing group of parents volunteers from the Medfield K-8 PTO Memorial Literacy Committee including, Phyllis Skloff, Kelly Scobbo, Erin Keysor, and Nicole Drummond. This committee did a fabulous job decorating the school and made sure that each and every classroom had someone from the community come in to read to them. BRAVA Team Literacy - you outdid yourselves!
