The evening event featured literacy crafts, free punch and cookies, and a special visit by the Cat in the Hat! A representative from Assemblyman Roger Hernandez' office presented the school with a proclamation in recognition of Read Across America.
The annual nationwide event is held to stress the importance of reading everyday. This includes reading to students, reading with students, and having students read independently. Read everyday!

Often packages will include more than one box top. Sometimes stores will have a promotion and will give a receipt with additional box tops.
