DENVILLE, NJ-- March 2 was Read Across America Day and the theme this year was celebrating Dr. Seuss' newest book, What Pet Should I Get?  For Lakeview School’s "One School, One Book" reading theme, "Animal Appreciation," it was a perfect fit.  All year students have read, learned, and heard about the roles animals play in their lives after reading School Days According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday and promote reading as a lifelong skill and love to the students, Lakeview invited Morris Knolls High School Varsity Club members to begin the morning. They greeted every student with posters of encouragement and high-fives to music as they entered the building. All took a “Reader’s Oath” to promise to make reading an important part of everyday.

Following, many guest readers were invited to share stories with the students.  Several family members, friends, and community members came to Lakeview to be a part of the day. To end the day’s events, the entire building, dropped everything to “Sit for Seuss” and share in a few moments of silent reading.

Thank you to Congressman Frelinghuysen, Assemblyman Carroll, the Morris Knolls High School Varsity Club members and advisors, Morris Knolls High School future educators and advisor, Mayor Andes, Chief Lezcano from the Fire Department, Mr. Forte, Superintendent of Denville Township Schools, Mrs. Gurowsky, Business Administrator, Mrs. Constanza, District’s Director of Technology, Ms. Witte, Town Councilwoman, Mrs. Kelem, Local Assistance Board Member, Police Officer Underwood, Mr. Jacobus, Denville Public Library’s Children’s Librarian, Mrs. Borecki, retired teacher, and Sparkee, Somerset Patriots Baseball Organization’s Mascot and representative for reading to Lakeview’s Pre-School through fifth grade classes.  A special thank you to Maureen Coultas from Hope’s Promise Farm in Chester who visited with Michaelangelo, a miniature therapy horse.  A book published about Michaelangelo’s life and work on the farm was shared to the third graders, an opportunity made possible by the A.R. Spinola PTA.
