READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK

February 26, 2013

It is that time of year again…we are celebrating all things Dr. Seuss this week, just like every other elementary school in the United States!  I got a great idea this year from Mrs. Fraser, the librarian at Telstar.  She suggested that we make snow sculptures of Dr. Seuss characters, and thanks to the sticky wet snow and the huge piles, the fifth graders have been having a blast during library classes:
