HLES & HHS Celebrate National Read Across America Day

Written By: Crystel Ellison

Houston Lower Elementary and Houston High School recently joined schools across the nation to celebrate National Read Across America Day.

The “Read Across America” event is celebrated annually March 2 in honor of American author, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

“We celebrate ‘Read Across America’ to promote positive reading habits, help foster a love for reading, inspire creativity and provide exposure to rhyme,” said Robert Winters, HLES principal.


Elementary students and teachers dressed up as Dr. Seuss, as well as ate green eggs and ham, to celebrate.

Miriam Garner, librarian, and Ann Beckett-Willis, English teacher, read to classrooms at Houston High School to promote reading in honor of this national event.

“[The students] listened to Oh the Places You Will Go, and then [told] me the places they wanted to go: college, careers, travel, family, etc. This led to a discussion of how they were going to to get to those places,” said Garner.
