Oh, the Places You’ll Go with Read-Alouds in Cobb!

On March 1, 2019, Cobb County schools celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday with Read Across Cobb, and elementary schools opened their doors wide to welcome guest readers. Local schools kicked off the day with character parades and favorite character costumes, and many faculty and staff jumped at the chance to celebrate their inner Seuss with top hats and Grinch caps. Middle and high schools also took part in this event proving that we’re never too old to enjoy a good book, and in some feeder patterns, older students got to experience the role of teacher as they read to the younger scholars. Thank you for all the students, parents, teachers, and district personnel who supported Read Across Cobb 2019. We look forward to continuing the read-aloud momentum throughout Cobb where we LOVE TO READ!
