Together in Education (TIE) and the reading teachers at the R.C. Waters Elementary School in Oak Harbor recently hosted a night to celebrate Dr. Seuss and the importance and benefits of reading.
Some of the favorite characters from Dr. Seuss’s books greeted more than 100 students and their families at the door. The students were able to exchange their books from home for different books. Each student chose a new book purchased by TIE the parents group for the school.
The Lorax read “Put Me in the Zoo” to all of the students. Students stopped in six stations to hear a favorite story by each of the guest readers.
The Cat in the Hat and a few of his friends greeted R.C.
Dr. Seuss characters were present thanks to the efforts of Superintendent Guy Parmigian, Principal Karen Gruber, and teachers Laurel Byington, Ann Randolph and June Beard.
The mission of Together in Education (TIE), the family group for R.C. Waters Elementary School, is to enhance and support children’s education through family involvement, in developing a closer connection between home, school and the community, and in creating a positive and inviting environment for students, staff and families.
