‘Read Across America Day’ brings out the fun in literacy

Gillette Elementary was transformed into Seusville as the campus celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on ‘Read Across America Day’.

Teachers dressed up as the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Horton and the Lorax.

The characters went up and down the halls giving out hugs, high fives and danced with the students.

Once the youngsters were pumped and excited about literacy, they had special visitors stop by their classrooms. Constables, military members and school board member Erma Casarez took time out of their busy schedule to read to the students.

The brains behind the exciting event is Academic Coordinator Julie Gimbel.

“Reading is so important, it’s the foundation of everything that we do,” Gimbel said.

This is her third year bringing guest readers to the campus and she hopes the tradition continues for years to come.
