Dr. Seuss's Birthday & Read Across America Week

It’s that time of year where we celebrate READING.  NEA's Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.  We will celebrate all week by having a “featured” Dr. Seuss book each day.

Monday, March 2— Featured Dr. Seuss Book:  Fox In Socks

            Wear two different socks or crazy socks 

Tuesday, March 3— Featured Dr. Seuss book: Green Eggs and Ham

            Wear the color green!

Wednesday, March 4— Featured Dr. Seuss book:  My Many Colored Days

            Wear your favorite color or a color that represents you!

Thursday, March 5—Featured Dr. Seuss book:  The Lorax

            Wear the color yellow, like the mustache of the Lorax.  Yellow is also the color we will wear to celebrate The Lemonade War book with our READING CELEBRATION IN THE EVENING from 6:00-7:00 pm at LVW.

Friday, March 6— Featured Dr. Seuss Book:  The Cat in the Hat

            Wear red, white and black like the Cat in the Hat.  It is also an LVW spirit day!

Reading Celebration Night, March 5!

We hope you have enjoyed reading The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies as part of our “One Building, One Book” event.  We still have one more week to read and turn in our question coupons!

On Thursday, March 5 from 6:00-7:00 pm, ALL LVW families are invited to attend a Reading Celebration Night.  Even if you did not read the book, you are invited to participate in activities related to the book and also hear from the classroom teachers how they are teaching vocabulary development in the classrooms.  They will give you helpful strategies and activities for supporting your child with vocabulary development at home.

From 6:00-6:30, all K-2 students and their families will go to the classrooms for a vocabulary experience.  At that time, all 4-6 grade students and families will go to the gym for some lemonade fun!  At 6:30, grades 4-6 students and families will go to their classrooms for a vocabulary experience while the younger students come to the gym for lemonade fun!


We hope you will join us for a reading night to remember!

THANK YOU to Oriental Trading Company for providing the prizes for the drawings this year!

Kindergarten Roundup March 6

Kindergarten roundup will be held Friday, March 6, to provide La Vista students and parents with the opportunity to visit the building and get to know the teachers.  This chance for open communication between parents and teachers is very important for making a student’s first year of school a successful one.  If you have a pre-school child who will be 5 on or before July 31, 2014, please contact your school secretary, Trish Foster (402)898-0463 or email with your information.
