Celebrating Dr. Seuss!

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Monday was Read Across America Day – a day to celebrate the joys of reading, in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

Our whole school (and stuffed animal friends) got together to read Dr. Seuss books. See how many different Seussical characters you can spot in these pics by Christine South-Going Zax.

 

The Cat in the Hat (Librarian Debora Hare) greets STEM students in the morning.

Interested in Art and Cultural Activities for our Kids?

Did you know….

…there is currently legislation before the State Senate to develop a cultural access fund? The legislation would increase access to art and educational opportunities in a variety of ways. For public school students, the legislation would:

· Expand experiences at schools or on-site at eligible organizations

· Leverage in-school education through cultural activities

· Fund transportation for every public school student to attend or participate in cultural organizations, once a year

· Focus on schools in economically-disadvantaged areas

More information is available at www.culturalaccesswa.org.

Right now the most important thing you can do is contact your representatives and encourage them to support House Bill 2212. This bill has been held up in the House Finance Committee and members of that committee (including bill co-sponsor and Chair Reuven Carlyle) need to hear from constituents with the simple message “Pass HB 2212 out of committee.”

Cultural Access Washington’s legislation has three main benefits – it enhances education, improves our economy, and preserves local control. It would also allow for a vote of the people at the county level before it could be implemented.

Please take a moment to call or email your representatives today. Members of the House Finance Committee may be found here …

And the full House of Representatives is listed here …
