NEWBERRY — Newberry Elementary School took part in Read Across America week in March, part of a nationwide event to honor reading and readers on Theodor Seuss Giesel’s birthday.

According to the National Education Association, nearly 45 million children and adults took part in 2016. Faculty, staff and students dressed with theme days to get into the reading spirit, including wear red-white-and-blue day, green day, dress as your future career day, tacky day, and socks day.

In addition to promoting literacy and reading, the creativity and accountability shown by NES students in their attire and participation connected the event to the school’s 21st Century Skills for Global Citizens.
