Read Across America 2014 Celebration
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
45 million students, parents, and educators across America celebrated and honored Dr. Seuss' birthday on Monday, March 3, 2014. In the Mason City Schools elementary buildings, they have a week-long celebration of imagination and reading. Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss is very true here in Mason City. Click on the links below to visit some of our elementary buildings and see how the students and staff are celebrating their love of reading. (Check back all week as these links will be updated and more added.)
