Read Across America Day 2018

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, Stonehouse participated in our annual Read Across America Day. It begins with a parade of storybook characters. Students in grades K-2 dress up as a favorite character as students in grades 3-5, staff, parents, and community members cheer them on. The parade is followed by a guest reader in every classroom to share a special story. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a huge success!
