On Friday, February 24, everyone at MMS participated in a school-wide celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday with the National Education Association’s  “Read Across America”.  The day included:

Drop Everything and Read (DEAR):  For 20 minutes during the school day MMS teachers & students silently read a book of their choice.

Read Aloud:  For the first 5-10 minutes of each class, every teacher read aloud to students. Some of the books teachers read include:

  • The Story of the Little Mole Who Went in Search of WhoDunit
  • Horton Hatches the Egg
  • Sir Cumference & the Sword in the Cone
  •  Sideways Stories from Wayside School
  • The Dot and the Line: a romance in lower mathematics
  • Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin
  • The Giving Tree
  • The Day the Crayon Quit

MMS has been hosting this day for 9 years and it was a very fun and special day for students and staff.
