Each year on March 2nd, our school takes some time out of the day to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss and “Read Across America”.
Our secondary students always take charge by choosing select books from Dr. Seuss to read to students in intermediate, primary, and multi-disabilities, as well as our adult program. Not only does this build friendships and confidence, it acts as a great way to work on reading skills.
Part of the beauty of JPII is that students and adults of all ages interact with each other on a daily basis. It’s not uncommon to see an older student or adult helping a younger student both in and out of the classroom.
This interaction (in school and out) is a healthy way to work on social abilities and just one of the many reasons that John Paul II Center is unique.
