March is National Reading Month


Dr. Seuss Day Birthday, Customs & Traditions

Held annually on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss Day is a holiday that celebrates the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel – otherwise known by the pen name by which he authored children’s books: Dr. Seuss. During the 1990s, the National Education Association advocated for a day to celebrate reading all over the United States. In 1998, it started Read Across America and decided to hold it on the same day as Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

On Dr. Seuss Day it is customary to read a favorite book with your child. It could be one of Dr. Seuss’s books or it could be another children’s book author. The goal of the day is to engage children in reading and to get them to read on a regular basis.  

Virtual Scholastic Book Fair

Our Book Fair is online from March 1-14, 2021! Support our school and help your child discover new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more! You’ll love the fun new option to shop for Book Fair exclusives directly from the interactive booklist and enjoy free shipping on book-only purchases over $25.

We will start at 8:00 am to 12:30 pm with each conference being about 20 minutes long. If you need a longer conference we can definitely set it up as the last appointment at 12:00 pm.
