WESTFIELD, NJ -- Holy Trinity School celebrated Read Across America Day on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
Principal Dr. Adele Ellis read from two of her favorite children's books, Pigeon HAS to Go to School, and Don't Let Pigeon Drive the Bus, by Mo Williams.
Dr. Ellis also announced a reading challenge for kids to read 30 minutes per day through March 5. Children will have the chance to earn raffle tickets (based on whether they have met or exceeded their goals) for prizes including wireless headphones, Barnes & Noble gift cards, and Scoops (Scotch Plains) ice cream cones.
The kindergarten classes had a special day. Instead of wearing their uniforms, they were allowed to come to school in their pajamas in celebration of Read Across America Day. In each class were special activities centered on the classic Dr. Seuss books The Cat in the Hat, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
