It's Read Across America Day

The popular Read Across America event returns Tuesday, March 2, celebrating the birthday of the late San Diegan Ted Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. At schools all across the district -- and the nation -- community members, celebrities and others will visit schools to read with students. The event is sponsored by the National Education Association.

Some visiting readers will even dress the part, coming as their favorite Seuss character. Among the events scheduled for San Diego Unified are the Community Reading Diffendoofer Celebration at Burbank Elementary and six Paws’itive Service Dog teams paying a visit to Lindbergh Schweitzer Elementary School.

If your school is holding a special event, please contact Jack Brandais at (619) 725-5570 or jbrandais@sandi.net.
