Family Read In! Today at 2:30 on the Lawn
"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child."
Bring a blanket, your favorite books (including Dr. Seuss), and your Cat in the Hat smile!
Remember parking at Santa Margarita is very limited.
The gates will be open for parents to enter at 2:25.
Come and share your love for reading as we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
Students will be having a “Chat with the Cat” throughout the day.
Parents are welcome to stay for the Key Character Assembly at 3:00 in the Garden Area.
