Annually, Read Across America is celebrated across the country in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday (Theodor Geisel). His books, such as Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat, have delighted children for generations and helped build early reading skills through engaging stories and playful language. Since 2012, TCM has successfully conducted volunteer projects at local Orange County schools. And for the third year in a row the organization has extended its philanthropic reach to include its out-of-state employees.
"Read Across America is an event that our entire staff looks forward to every year, and we are excited to see how it continues to grow," said Deanne Mendoza, co-owner of Teacher Created Materials. "This year we supported nearly 35 schools across 24 different states, donating over 1600 backpacks filled with literacy and math resources to all of the students."
Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School is a transitional kindergarten through sixth grade school educating 632 students. As a Title I school, more than 90 percent of students qualify for the free or reduced price lunch program. The staff and principal, Beth Cusimano, are dedicated to preparing all students for success in college and career. TCM selected this school based upon its needs, contribution to the local community, and commitment to academic excellence.
"The goal of our Read Across America program is to encourage literacy and reading," said Corinne Burton, President of Teacher Created Materials. "We are proud to partner with Eisenhower Elementary this year to support the incredible students and staff, and further build their love for learning."
A variety of activities were completed around the school throughout the day. They included:
