A SEUSSICAL GARDEN OF READING

Dr. Seuss was wild about books and crazy about animals too! Dr. Seuss had a talent for creating fantastic creatures that brought his books to life. His newest book to debut is WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? We are going to transform ROOM 214 into a Magical Garden of Reading...Dr. Seuss style ...featuring flowers, grass and trees, stuffed Dr. Seuss Characters, Dr. Seuss books, pet books and a garden of reading fun. We will allow students and their buddies to explore our Seussical Garden to discover and read books about PETS that we may or may not see in our own backyard garden.

Would A Giraffe make a Good Pet?...Let's Help Adopt the Giraffes

As we continue to promote kindness...Shoemaker is taking part in the Adopt the Giraffes at the Lehigh Valley Zoo Campaign. The Community Service Club will be making a donation from profits earned from the Student Store. In Addition...we will have a large jar in our Magical Garden of Reading with a special SPOT dedicated to Giraffes. Each student who makes a donation can fill out a GIRAFFE BOOK MARKER to hang on a special display. Staff will also participate in JEANS FOR GIRAFFES DRESS DOWN DAY. So far the Zoo has raised $40,000.00 of the $700,000. needed to build the new Giraffe Habitat. Watch the video below!
