Exeter-Milligan celebrated Read Across America Day with a week-long celebration that will culminate on Wednesday. The students were encouraged to embrace some of the characters Dr. Seuss created in his books. Throughout the week the students wore crazy socks on Monday, dressed like a twin on Tuesday, and wore old hats and new hats on Wednesday. Thursday, March 2nd was Dr. Seuss’ birthday and was planned to be a red fish, blue fish day but State Basketball interfered and the activities were rescheduled.
On Tuesday in Milligan the third through sixth graders enjoyed the reading of “One Fish, Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish” and then snacked on decorated fish sugar cookies. Pictured above Thing One (Liberty Johnson) and Thing Two (Emma Meyer) embraced the Seuss’ theme for twin’s day.

Exeter-Milligan’s Read Across America celebration culminated with a read-in on Wednesday afternoon. The 7 – 12th graders volunteered to read Dr. Seuss books to the elementary during their lunch period. Each older student chose a Dr. Seuss book and read to a small group of elementary students. No one is sure who enjoyed the experience more. Above, Samantha Horne picks one of her favorite Dr. Seuss books to read.
