As part of its celebration of National Read Across America Day and iconic children’s author Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, Rushmore hosted several activities designed to promote the importance of reading. Students were invited to the school library for a collective reading of a Dr. Seuss book, and then participated in the game “Seuss,” modeled on the popular game “Bingo.” The activities were fun and educational ways to encourage students to read regularly.
