FHS Celebrates Read Across America Day
FHS students recently celebrated Read Across
America with local elementary students. This was the eight consecutive year that
Franklinton High School students shared their joy of reading with Franklinton
Elementary School students. It was also the fourth year the event was celebrated
with Long Mill Elementary students. Elementary students listened attentively as
high school students enthusiastically read Dr. Suess stories to them. Older
students engaged the younger students by having them participate in
storytelling and allowing them to ask, and answer questions. They discussed the
moral of the stories and shared their perspectives. Older students stressed the
importance of reading and shared how reading will benefit them in the future.
Both groups equally enjoyed the celebration.
Read Across America is observed annually on
or near March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author, Dr.
Suess. Advance placement students from Mrs. Tilley’s AP English class, members
of the Future Teachers of America, library media assistants, and other
interested students participated. Mrs. Patricia Sasser, retired FC Schools teacher,
made rounds to each classrooms dressed as the Cat in the Hat. She, along with Mrs.
Doris Davis-Williams and coordinated the event in cooperation with Mrs. Amy
Leonard, FES Media Specialist; and Mrs. Cheryl Wright, Long Mill Elementary School Media Specialist.
Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America initiative is a year-round
literacy project that encourages students to celebrate reading all year-round. Our
local events are promoted by the Franklin County Association of Educators
