Marietta Students Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on ‘Read Across America Day’

Students and staff in Marietta City Schools joined millions of their peers across the country this week to celebrate the sixteenth annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day.

NEA’s Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading, encourages citizens to pick up a book and read (while wearing a silly hat and socks if you choose). The special day also continues the district’s commitment to the initiative Marietta Reads!, which encourages Marietta City Schools students to read more, read better and read widely.

Take a look at these photos from around the district of classroom celebrations that remind us that you’re never too old, too wacky, or too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.
