Together in Education (TIE) and the reading teachers at the RC Waters Elementary School in Oak Harbor hosted a night to celebrate Dr. Suess and children’s love of books. Some of the favorite characters from Dr. Suess’s books greeted more than 100 students and their families at the door.
The students were able to exchange their books from home for different books. Each student chose a new book purchased by TIE, the parents group for the school. The Lorax read “Put Me in the Zoo” to all of the students. Students stopped in six stations to hear a favorite story by each of the guest readers.
Guest readers included RCW reading teachers; Kathy Barbour, retired RCW reading specialist; Michele Jividen, BCS bus driver; Teresa Blodgett, retired Director, Kersten's Korner; Kim Geldie, Riverview; Sherry Priesman, BCS EMIS Technology Coordinator and Heidi Lutz, RCW Kindergarten Teacher. Dr. Suess characters were present thanks to the efforts of Superintendent Parmigian, Principal Karen Gruber and teachers Laurel Byington, Ann Randolph and June Beard.
