Read Across America - Dresden Elementary School
Read Across America Revised 2-5-18
Dear Friend of Dresden Elementary School,
You are invited to participate in Dresden Elementary School’s Nineteenth Annual Celebration of Read Across America on March 2, 2018. This is the biggest one-day literacy celebration in the U.S. Read Across America day was started to honor Dr. Theodore Geisel, better known to millions as Dr. Seuss, on his birthday. This year would have been his 114th birthday!
For the twentieth year, the National Education Association (NEA) is the primary sponsor of this wonderful reading event. We hope it will help to motivate children to read the way the late Dr. Seuss did. Supporting NEA are 50 national organizations including Target, the NAACP, the American Library Association, the National PTA, and the YMCA.
Here at Dresden Elementary, we have had the pleasure of welcoming U.S. Representative Johnny Isaacson, Former State Superintendent Linda Schrenko, and our Superintendent of the DeKalb County School District, Dr. R. Stephen Green, to read to our children. DeKalb County School Administrators, Dresden Partners in Education, AT&T, Everybody Wins, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and friends of Dresden’s staff members, have continuously supported us.
You are invited to share in this very special time with us. The students are looking forward to the wonderful Dr. Seuss stories and other stories that you will read to them. Please RSVP by Wednesday, February 21st, if you will be able to join us for Read Across America day at Dresden. Circle the times that you will be available below, and return the form to Ms. Debra Mines at Dresden Elementary School at 2449 Dresden Drive, Chamblee, GA 30341, or call the school at (678) 676-7202.
Thank you for your support in our efforts to encourage a love for reading!
