Read Across America: TES participated in National Read Across America-Dr. Seuss Day. We had a kick off assembly where Cat in the Hat made an appearance and classes announced their class goals. Many of the goals include reading a specific number of books, word count, and a scavenger hunt. Six graders became hosts in the library and spent time reading with the younger students and helping them with the scavenger hunt. Together as a whole school, we all joined in with our Dr. Suess song.


Spring has finally sprung! There is something energizing about April that makes you think of possibilities: longer days, green leaves popping out on trees, flowers blooming — a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. So, let's take a look at some special days in April!

  • 7th April – No Housework Day.

A personal favorite, is that day when you don’t have to feel guilty when you convince yourself that the giant pile of clothes on your floor can wait another day, it’s practically mandatory.

  • 11th April – Teach Children To Save Day.

The American Bankers Association have sponsored this day since its inception in 1997.

Volunteers from the banking world give talks at schools across America about the importance of saving money from an early age.

  • 22nd April – Jelly Bean Day.

These tasty treats come in literally any flavor you can think of, so there’s something to please everyone. Jelly beans have been around since the mid-19th Century, when people used to send them to soldiers during the American Civil War.

  • 27th April – Tell A Story Day.

You know how there’s always that one person you know who can talk and talk about the most inane details of their lives? And no matter how hard you try you just cannot seem to escape the incessant boredom? Well April 27th is Tell A Story Day, so you have to put up with it. More fun ways to celebrate this day includes reading a story to children.


On April 15, 1912, the famous Titanic ship hit an iceberg and sunk on her first and only voyage.
After a 1,500 year break, the first Olympics of the modern era took place on April 6, 1896, in Athens.
