McAlister Intermediate School (MIS) students joined our friends at A. Ward Spaulding School for the morning to celebrate Read Across America Day! This particular day is chosen as it is the actual birthday of Dr. Seuss himself! His real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, and he was born on March 2, 1904, in our neighboring town of Springfield!

Some of our McAlister fifth graders read as our younger students listened intently, and everyone participated by wearing their coziest pajamas, Dr. Seuss shirts and hats or other items commemorating this event.

On a cold, wet and sometimes snowy winter’s day, what better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss than to curl up with a good book in the company of good friends and neighbors!
