Dr. Seuss celebrations held across Harrison County School District
Students across the Harrison County School District celebrated Read Across America week with all sorts of fun, interactive activities. For instance, Harrison Central Elementary School started off the week with a popular Dr. Seuss book “Oh the Places You’ll Go”. Students dressed up in career outfits to show what they would like to do when they grow up.
On Tuesday, older students from the three Harrison County high schools and Orange Grove Elementary read to the younger students. On Wednesday, the Shuckers visited Harrison Central Elementary to kick-off their “Hit the Books” campaign. Students who read six books by a certain deadline will be eligible to receive a free ticket to a Shuckers game. On Thursday, the school held a Dr. Seuss parade.
Harrison Central Elementary Library Media Specialist Amanda Bradley said, “I feel that at the age group we work with, that’s kindergarten through third grade, it’s important for us to instill in them now the importance of reading, because once they leave us, if they don’t have that foundation, it’s hard to get it.”
The week ended with a tasty breakfast of green eggs and ham.
