Blissfield celebrates Reading Month in March

Posted on March 5th, by Marcia Loader in News. Comments Off on Blissfield celebrates Reading Month in March

March is National Reading Month, and local elementary schools are encouraging students to turn off the television and turn the pages of a good book instead. Blissfield Elementary School is using a “Reading Fiesta” to show students that March “is Nacho ordinary month.”

Second-and third-grade students kicked off their reading activities this past Monday with custom canvas paintings featuring a Dr. Seuss quote of their choice.

Students worked under the guidance of BES teachers Sandi Porter and Christina Shearer to celebrate the 110th birthday of Dr. Seuss.

A few of the highlights among this month’s activities are:

March 7 — Visiting author Joe Kelley reading her children’s book “Pete the Popcorn”

March 11 — Family Reading Night at the school

March 14— Dress like your favorite book character

March 21 — Read in your pajamas at school March 26: Read an article in the newspaper

March 27 — The fifth grade Wax Museum

Numerous other activities will be taking place throughout the month, and a full calendar of activities can be found on the Blissfield Elementary School’s website at
