In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read-Across-America Day in March students at Eagle Point Elementary School recently voted on their favorite book characters. Kindergarten through Grade 2 students chose Junie B. Jones as their favorite with Skippyjon Jones coming in second.
Grade 3 and Grade 4 students picked Captain Underpants, with Snoopy as a close runner-up.
Other related activities at the school included bookmark-making sessions for gifts to family and friends and an all-school Drop-Everything-And-Read (D.E.A.R.) time. After school some children stopped by the public library for a Dr. Seuss birthday party to round off the festivities.
