Cypress Trails Elementary School celebrated Read Across America Day on Friday, March 1. Read Across America Day began in 1998 to motivate children to gain a love for reading and to celebrate the birthday of author Dr. Seuss. Cypress Trails students were encouraged to come to school dressed in their favorite Seuss attire. Parents and the community were invited to serve as guest readers in each of the classrooms. Shown above, School Board Member Marcia Andrews was a guest reader in teacher Glenda Marshall’s first grade class. The students were enthralled as Andrews read the Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham.
