This week is the “Read Across America” celebration at Holyoke Elementary School. Today, students wore crazy hair and hats. Each day for the remainder of the week also has a dress-up theme. During the week each classroom has scheduled a variety of activities to encourage reading.
Tuesday, Feb. 26: Hats off to Dr. Seuss - wear hats or crazy hair.
Wednesday, Feb. 27: Crazy Character Day - dress as a character from a favorite book
Thursday, Feb. 28: Topsey Turvey Day - wear your clothes backward or wear crazy, mismatched clothing
Friday, Mar. 1: Read Across America Day - wear pajamas and bring pillows and/or blankets.
Friday, parents are invited to Pastries with Parents - March 1st 7:50-8:20 AM. During this time, parents will have a chance to enjoy a pastry and juice with their children, while listening to their child read a book or while reading a book to children. If you have more than one child in the elementary, you can separate as parents or you can have all your children go to one classroom and enjoy a book as a family. We will make an announcement at 8:15 for parents to start leaving the building as we will need to continue with our busy day. We are really excited to have you stop in and visit! Hope to see you on Friday, March 1st!
