Pat will be spending today visiting elementary schools as part of a district-wide Children’s Day, Book Day celebration in the Santa Fe Public Schools.
Each school will celebrate with their own choice of fun and engaging activities, including:
- A school-wide outdoor reading celebration where families are encouraged to attend
- Students dressing up as their favorite book characters
- One school principal will read his favorite book to the school during morning announcements
- Book buddies will be sharing their favorite books with each other
- A story museum, where each class will have a table featuring their favorite book
- A play performed by teachers for students
- Book giveaways
- A school-wide hour where students will drop everything and read
Here’s hoping this idea will spread to other school districts across the country!
