Celebrating Reading and Dr. Seuss

Happy birthday Dr. Seuss!

On this past frosty Friday, over 75 families and 120 students gathered at NSES to celebrate reading and the birthday of Dr. Seuss.  Families arrived in their pajamas to listen to stories and make a paper bag book with Mrs. McKay.  Some lucky kids even got to take a picture with the Cat in the Hat!  It was a perfect way to end the week – cuddling up with books and family!

Dr. Seuss Night was great!

On Friday, February 28th, we celebrated the life of Dr. Seuss and our love of reading with families from NSES.  Over 50 families came in their pajamas to read, meet the Cat in the Hat, and make a special Dr. Seuss craft with Mrs. McKay.  We had a great time as I’m sure you can tell from these photos!  Special thanks to the following volunteers who helped to make our night a big success: Alyssa Koerner, Ginny Swanson, Kristin Murphy, Andrea McKay, Danielle Hanlon, Jen Paul, Morgan and Lori Bassett, Mrs. Clifford, Mrs. Bosco, and Mrs. Tiner.  Bernadette and I thank everyone who celebrated with us!
