“The Cat in the Hat” Visits Balmville School
Recently, Balmville Communications and Media Center students, in kindergarten through third grade, were invited to attend the school’s 3rd Annual Read Across America Night.
During the evening, students and their families attended a read-aloud that followed up with a hands-on activity and had their pictures taken with "The Cat in the Hat". “The Cat in the Hat” also delivered a bag of goodies to each classroom. Each bag was filled with the book that was read to students, bookmarks, a Dr. Seuss hat and Dr. Seuss pencils along with a journal. In addition, parents were given a folder with tips for reading aloud, a certificate for attending and a list of suggested books to read to their children.
Following the classroom initiatives, students and their families enjoyed refreshments and a read-aloud on the big screen from football star Tim Tebow, who read Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham.
