Read Across America Day 2018

WES students celebrate Dr. Seuss and reading on March 1

On Thursday, March 1, Watervliet Elementary School students, parents and teachers celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Day with a “Rock Concert” featuring performances by Watervliet High School’s à capella singing group – Delta Force and resident UPK musician: Andy “THE MUSIC MAN” Morse. (It rhymes, just like Dr. Seuss!) Visit Andy’s website to learn more about him and his music 


In recognition of  Read Across America Day, teachers encouraged each student to read for a total of five (5) hours prior to the concert. Upon entrance to the “Rock Concert” students entered their reading log into a drawing for Dr. Seuss books, stuffed toys and a grand prize – an Amazon Kindle Fire!
