Friendship school instills fun, importance of reading
Friendship — Friendship Village School staff and students celebrated Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day during the week of March 3.
Lots of "things" were going on as the teachers made an extra special effort to emphasize fun and the importance of reading.
Area school board members as well as Regional School Unit 40 Interim Superintendent Michael Cormier paid the school a visit and assisted in the festivities.
The week-long schedule included a kick-off assembly March 3, with everyone encouraged to wear red and white. March 4 was Fish Day and all were to wear anything related to fish or fishing — but nothing too smelly!
Wacky attire was the theme for March 5's Wacky Wednesday, while green was the theme for "Green Eggs and Ham" Day March 6. And the final day celebrated Mustache Day with "The Lorax."
