The Three Village Central School District community came together on March 2 to celebrate reading and literature as part of Read Across America Day. The nationwide celebration is held on Dr. Suess’ birthday and helps to foster a love for reading across schools and communities.

Minnesauke Elementary School held several “stop, drop and read” times, where students stopped everything they were doing to open a book. These times were announced over the school loudspeakers and encouraged the entire building to participate at once. Additionally, members of the Stony Brook University Women’s volleyball team visited classrooms for a readaloud. They shared some of their favorite books with students and took time to answer questions about school and their sport.

The celebrations continued at Nassakeag Elementary School where the theater club put on a special performance of songs from the musical, “Suessical Jr.” Students were excited to honor the many works of Dr. Suess and even wore hats paying tribute to his famous character, the Cat in the Hat.
