Oh The Places You Go!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Read Across America Week at Elliott Elementary School was celebrated with much energy and creativity! The week which honors Dr. Seuss and highlights literacy started with Crazy Sock Day and ended with a musical performance of “The Country Mouse and the City Mouse” by  The Atlantic Coast Theater. On Monday, students and staff dressed in crazy socks honoring Dr. Seuss’s Fox in Socks followed by Tuesday’s Crazy Hat Day in honor of Seuss’s Cat in the Hat.  On Wednesday it was revealed that Green Eggs and Ham won the vote for the favorite Dr. Seuss book.  On Thursday, students and staff decked out in green to celebrate this famous book.

 “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if you only try!”   This described one of the week’s highlights and most creative activities, The Book Character Parade. This event was a collage of outstanding, creative costumes by students and staff that spotlighted characters from favorite books. On Friday morning, parents, staff, and students lined the parade route to cheer on one of the most inspired and innovative book character parades since being held at Elliott Elementary School.  Friday afternoon the students and staff were entertained with the musical performance of “The City Mouse and the Country Mouse” by The Atlantic Coast Theater. The cast even drew eager students out of the audience to help with the performance. After the performance, the cast held a question and answer session with the students about reading and the performing arts.

And to think we saw it all on Elliott Drive!
