Roxbury: Franklin Elementary School Receives Special Readers for Read Across America

Landing \ Roxbury News

Franklin Elementary School was a bustling place last week for Read Across America. Community and district members came together to make this a memorable week for the students.

Theresa McNemar, Reading Specialist at the school sent out invitations for readers to come over to the school and read a book or two to the students. The guests accepting invitations this year were Town Councilman Mark Crowley and Bob DeFillippo, Roxbury Chief of Police Marc Palanchi, police and fire department representatives, the Roxbury Women’s Club, as well as district administrators.

Select students from Lincoln/Roosevelt School and the Roxbury High School Spanish Club members were also some of the honored guest readers!

McNemar and Samantha Gorman, Spanish Club Advisor and Spanish Teacher at Roxbury High School, collaborated during this year's Read Across America Week in an effort to bring students from the high school over to Franklin.

A group of RHS Spanish Club members dedicated their lunchtime on Monday, February 27th to come over and read books in Spanish by Dr. Seuss to the third and fourth graders.

Gorman explained how “this has become an annual collaboration between schools because both groups of students enjoy it so much! Franklin students even took the time to write personalized “Thank You” notes to the readers from RHS. Both schools are looking forward to continuing in this Read Across America tradition!”

Throughout the week, students also answered trivia questions and participated in Reading Trains to share their love of reading.

Students and families were invited on Thursday, March 2nd from 7-8 p.m. to a reading event to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Among the activities that evening were plant a Truffala Tree, face painting, the reading lounge, a photo booth, making Oobeleck, and drawing the Cat in the Hat. Staff at Franklin School supervised each station and helped to make it a wonderful wrap-up to the week.
