Family Literacy Night was a huge success | Letter

I am writing today to say how excited I was to read about the John Muir Elementary Literacy night to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday!

A few years ago, I volunteered at John Muir Elementary, and had an amazing time working with all of these kids from various backgrounds, getting to know them, and doing my best to help them continue to learn and grow. Both during the school year and throughout their summer learning program, the students are excited and ready to learn!

John Muir Elementary is an amazing school filled with great kids and passionate teachers, and I am so excited to see events like this happening to encourage the continuation and importance of learning and reading for these kids!
