Read Across America Day in Robbinsdale Area Schools

Students in Robbinsdale Area Schools celebrated Read Across America Day, a nationwide event honoring the birthday of Dr. Seuss, March 1.
At Robbinsdale Middle School, Principal John Cook read an excerpt from ‘Oh the Places You Will Go’ over the intercom. Immediately afterwards, the entire school participated in a 30-minute silent reading period. This included students, staff, teachers and Principal Cook.
Teachers dressed as Dr. Seuss characters traveled from room to room highlighting the day and dressing students up as the Cat in the Hat. Each student also received a Dr. Seuss bookmark.
