CROSSVILLE — Brown Elementary School celebrated Read Across America in early March. Read Across America is an annual event sponsored by the National Education Association that celebrates reading and the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Some classes dressed up in “Cat in the Hat” style, striped socks and Grinch-colored clothing. Other classes played rhyming games and devoted extra time to reading. The Cat in the Hat (Tekeia Miller) read Dr. Seuss books with children in Pre-K through third grades and visited with students during lunch.
