PHOTOS: JHS Students Walk the 'Read' Carpet

As part of the Read Across America Day celebrations, Jerome Harrison students were treated like celebrities.

Students across the country celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2 by participating in Read Across America–however, not all students got to celebrate by walking a 'read' carpet dressed in their best like those at .

Dressed in their best, students enjoyed a decked out gymnasium, special guest readers, lots of yummy snacks, a violinist and even a party bus.

Check out the photo gallery for a glimpse into the students' fun-filled day. A full story and video to follow.

I am always impressed with the special activities that are made possible for our children at Jerome Harrison school. I have noticed so often, that Mrs. Bannon is connected with these activities. I am sure that there are teams of people that make the events happen. The bottom line is....MY FAMILY AND I APPRECIATE YOUR EFFORTS. Thanks so much!!!

While I appreciate all the hard work the teachers and PTO put into Read Across America Day, I don't think the theme was age appropriate. What do young kids know about the red carpet and do we want them focussing on celebrities? I also don't think it was appropriate to encourage kids to wear their "best clothes" to school on a day to honor reading. What about a pajama day and pretending to read bedtime stories? All the kids have pajamas, not everyone has fancy clothes. I thought it was a shame they did not focus more on Dr. Suess, especially this year with the Lorax movie coming out.

I thought the school put alot of time and effort into making that day very special for the kids. They seemed to have had a wonderful time. My daughter talked about particular things that she enjoyed that day. Also, bringing in their favorite story to get to read inside a limosine which most kids have never been in was fun for them.
