“Read Across America – A Celebration of Dr. Seuss”
March 24, 2017
During the week of February 27th through March 3rd, Belmont School celebrated “Read Across America.” This nationwide educational event is held annually in honor of world-renowned children’s author Dr. Seuss in conjunction with his birthday, March 2nd. Belmont students dressed up each day of the week to honor a different book by Dr. Seuss. On Monday, the students wore crazy socks to recognize Fox in Socks. Mustaches adorned the halls of the buildings on Tuesday in honor of The Lorax. On Wednesday, students dressed in “Wacky Wear” to celebrate the book Wacky Wednesday. Thursday was designated “Green Day” as the students celebrated Green Eggs and Ham by wearing green and enjoying a fantastic meal of green eggs and ham prepared by the cafeteria staffs for lunch. On Friday, students wore their favorite hats to acknowledge The Cat in the Hat.
Throughout the week, the students of the elementary building enjoyed signs prepared by the Belmont High School Cheerleaders featuring famous Dr. Seuss quotes. In addition, during the week-long event, several high school English students read the honored book of the day to the elementary students. Several grades also paid homage to Dr. Seuss’s book Bartholomew and the Oobleck during the week by reading the story and creating their own oobleck.
Friday was packed with culminating events for the week. During the morning, the 4th graders acted our several Dr. Seuss stories for the younger students. The celebration concluded with a parade to honor Dr. Seuss that afternoon. Belmont Elementary Principal Mrs. Katie Crane served as Grand Marshal as she drove her prisoner Officer Donovan Cain through the parade. She was followed by the Belmont High School Cheerleaders and Cardinal Marching Band as they cheered and played. Finally, riding on a fire truck and blowing bubbles, The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, and Thing 2 arrived to the excited chants of the students.
4th grade teacher Mrs. Sheree Randolph, coordinator of this event, would like to thank the following for all of the hard work and support throughout the week: Mr. Van Roberts, Mrs. Katie Crane, Mr. Jody McClung, Officer Donovan Cain, Mr. Rick Murrell, Mrs. Adrain Lynch, Mrs. Camille Stanfield, Mrs. Debra Newell, Mrs. Kristen Zemek, the BHS and BMS cafeteria staffs, the Belmont Fire Department, the BHS Cheerleaders and Cardinal Marching Band members, and all elementary teachers and staff. As Dr. Seuss once stated, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” Much fun was held by all, and many memories were made throughout the week!
