HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. SEUSS!
REP. MUÑOZ READS THE AGELESS LESSONS OF DR. SEUSS TO PALMVIEW H.S. STUDENTS


PALMVIEW TEXAS - State Representative Sergio Muñoz, Jr. took time today to administer a reading lesson to Palmview High School students, helping to mark the 108th birthday of Dr. Seuss, and taking part in Read Across America Day celebrations. Read Across America Day was established by the National Education Association in 1997 and has become the largest reading event in the country.

"I am so pleased to take advantage of the learning opportunity that Read Across America presents," said Muñoz. "It is very appropriate that the program coincides its effort with the annual commemoration of Dr. Seuss' birthday, because the Dr. Seuss books all have a positive message that we need to teach to our children."

Rep. Muñoz is committed to improving literacy in the Rio Grande Valley and recognizes Read Across America Day as a tool to accomplish that goal.

"Reading skills are vital to academic and career success and all of us, including teachers, parents, employers, and public officials need to do our part to develop our young people to be ready for higher education and to contribute positively to the economy and work force," added Muñoz.
