Volunteers from throughout the community came out to read to students from grade levels Kindergarten thru 3rd grade in celebration of Dr. Seuss' Birthday and Read Across America. Students engaged with our readers by listening intently and discussing the stories read to them. Each student of LES received a Dr. Seuss pencil and numerous prizes were awarded from a raffle ticket pull throughout the day. Refreshments were served to the volunteers and faculty in celebration of the event.
Special thanks to our volunteers who came out from our parish: St. John the Baptist Parish Police department, St. John Parish Assessor's office, St. John EDC, Marathon Petroleum, St. John Parish School Board Central Office, Louisiana Federal Credit Union, Teche Action Clinic, Pastor Adams, and retired employee Mrs. Iona.
