Join Brier Creek Commons and the North Carolina Association of Educators as we celebrate Read Across America for the…
Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast with the Cat!
March 4th | 9:30AM – Noon
Barnes & Noble Parking Area
Read Across America Day – that wonderful day when readers young and old celebrate the joy of reading and the birthday of Dr. Seuss, an American author best known for bringing some of the most beloved characters to life in his children’s books.
Our event will start with the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast sponsored by RISE. The cost for each breakfast is $6.00 and a portion of the proceeds go to the NC Children’s Foundation.
CASH OR CHECK ONLY WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE DOOR!
One out of every four children in North Carolina lives in poverty. All across North Carolina, children struggle in school because they lack basic needs that assist them in being successful in school. Many parents do not have the means to purchase such things as eyeglasses, shoes that fit, clothing, school supplies, school fees and much more.
The North Carolina Foundation for Public School Children’s mission is to make sure every student in K-12 has what they need to succeed in school. We accomplish this by:
Helping provide basic necessities for public school children
Improving parents skills in order for children to be successful
Expanding professional development opportunities for educators
“Growing Our Own” future public school teachers through the NC Teacher Cadet Program
A host of activities will be available for children – everything from special displays, to book readings by some very special guests, to a live appearance by that mischievous feline the Cat in the Hat! We know the weather in March can be tricky so this year we came up with a fabulous seussicall plan! The event will take place is our large heated tent with plenty of tables and chairs for breakfast to start the fun. The breakfast will take place from 9:30 am -10:00 am and then event activities begin. There is no charge to participate in the event at 10:00 am but who would want to miss a Green Eggs and Ham breakfast by RISE? Certainly not the Cat in the Hat who will be on hand visiting with the children during the breakfast event.
Please join us in honoring the art of reading and supporting such an important organization supporting children in North Carolina.
Check back soon for more events!
