Reading Across America – A Celebration of Reading
By: PHS Junior Kara Heck
Mr. E Taped to Wall

Parkway students in kindergarten through third grade celebrated Reading Across America the week of March 5 - 9.  Reading Across America is a nationwide reading celebration in honor of the birthday of Dr. Seuss, who is the author of many very popular children’s books.  Throughout the week students participated in a variety of activities focused on enhancing their reading skills and encouraging them to read on a regular basis. The activities included a read-a-thon, guest readers, a book reading competition, and a week full of Dr. Seuss themed snacks. Students in Mrs. Evan’s kindergarten class even made green eggs and ham!  To go along with the activities, Parkway Elementary students enjoyed reading Dr. Seuss books including One Fish, Two Fish, Blue Fish, Red Fish, The Sleep Book, Wacky Wednesday, Oh, the Places You'll Go, and If I Ran a Zoo. Throughout the week students voted for the staff member they most wanted to see taped to a wall.  At the end of the week, the students who met their reading goal for the nine weeks received a long piece of duct tape. Then on Friday, the votes were counted and Mr. Esselstein was the staff member the students wanted to see taped to the wall. Mr. Esselstein graciously let the students who met their reading goal use the pieces of duct tape to tape him to the wall.
