Rancho Celebrates Read Across America 3/1/12

On Thursday, March 1, 2012 Rancho Santa Gertrudes School celebrated "Read Across America", honoring the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Our parents and students began the morning eating Green Eggs & Ham for breakfast in the cafeteria, along with our very own Cat In The Hat. Many members from our Santa Fe Springs community were special guest readers in our Kindergarten through Sixth grade classrooms. It was a fun-filled, relaxing day surrounded by literacy.
