Your 2nd period teacher must sign your ticket for you to be excused. Next week is National Read Across America Week, also known as Dr. Seuss week.

Monday- Celebrate “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” by wearing red and/or blue.
Tuesday- Celebrate “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins” by wearing a hat.
Wednesday- Celebrate “If I Ran The Zoo” by wearing animal print or something with an animal on it.
Thursday- It’s Twins Day. You and a friend can celebrate “The Cat In The Hat” by dressing alike.
Friday- Students get to celebrate “I’m Not Going To Get Out Up Today” by staying home and sleeping in. It’s a District Day.

And since we always hear that teens would like to relax and read, but just don’t have the time, we’re holding a Birthday Party Read-In on Thursday, March 2nd, during 6th period. You must get a ticket from the library staff and your sixth period teacher must sign your ticket so we know you’ve been excused. For information on any of these events, please come to the library.
