This week, Cherry Hill schools hosted a number of events in honor of Read Across America Day, a celebration of reading and literacy that coincides with the March 2 birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.
The members of Township Council were excited to take part in celebrations at schools across our community.
On Thursday, Feb. 26, Council President Dave Fleisher, Vice President Sara Lipsett, and Council members Brian Bauerle, Susan Shin Angulo and Carole Roskoph were among a number of local officials asked to serve as guest readers at Stockton Elementary School, reading to and answering questions from students in grades 3, 4 and 5.
On Monday, March 2, Councilwomen Sara Lipsett, Susan Shin Angulo and Melinda Kane visited Temple Beth Sholom to read Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?" to the school's 3- and 4-year-old Early Childhood students.
Mayor Cahn and members of Cherry Hill Council have supported Read Across America and similar events in our community for a number of years, and were proud to once again support such wonderful programs.
