Today was a day to celebrate reading, on March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Â Our students started the day with a literacy assembly in the Auditorium. Â Shortly after the assembly Senator Michael Johnston visited our classroom to visitÂ and read a book. Â After he finished reading Senator Johnston asked us about Ameritowne. Â As you can imagine our students were very excited to share the government learning they’ve experienced in preparation for our day at Ameritowne. Â Each student in our class proudly shared their job position and where they work. Â The questions our students asked were very interesting and show just how much they’ve been learning about the legislation process. Â Today is not only a day to celebrate reading, but a day to celebrate learning!
Senator Johnston is running for governor of Colorado in our next election. Â Who knows? Â Maybe your child met the future governor of Colorado today?
Later during the morning, we had another guest reader visit. Â Denver Nugget and KU Alum Mark Randall joined our students. Â Everyone really enjoyed his powerful message to be who you are, be an individual. Â We want to thank all of the guest readers who visited and brought literature to life. Â A special thank you goes to Michael Mazurana our elementary principal who organized our special day. Â Our University Bulldogs had an amazing day of reading. Â A day to remember!
