To honor Ted Geisel (a/k/a Dr. Seuss) on the anniversary of his birth, March 2, the NEA (National Education Association) sponsors Read Across America. Students at East Lake School are promoting and participating in this nationwide activity. Dr. Seuss epitomizes a love of children and learning. His use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful. Children of all ages love Dr. Seuss. All members of the East Lake School Community were requested to read for 15 minutes, any time during the school day on Friday, March 1, 2019. Many activities were completed during the school day. Students and staff wore wacky hats to help celebrate the day.
