Gomes celebrates Read Across America
Submitted By Anushka Madhavani
Students at John Gomes Elementary recently hosted a Read Across America event at their Fremont campus. Among the highlights of the weeklong event was school Principal Douglas Whipple reading aloud from his recently published book, ÒThe Space Between Your TeethÓ; he also illustrated the book.
The week of activities beginning February 27th included a full slate of fun including days when students wore backwards/inside out clothing and a favorite hat day. Guests who visited during the week included Fremont Mayor Lily Mei and Mission Valley Regional Occupation Program firefighters.
Read Across America Week was a fun experience at Gomes; students are looking forward to next yearÕs event.
