We’re Having a WONDERFUL Love of Reading Week!


This week is Love of Reading Week at Tucson Country Day School, and teachers, staff, students and families are having a wonderful time celebrating their love for reading!

We’ve had Crazy Sock Day in honor of Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss….

Hat Day! Ms. Nicole’s prekindergarten class created their own hats! The Dragonfly class used their finger muscles to cut, fold and tape strips of paper to create a headband hat! Some students picked their favorite colors while others created a pattern.

Some of Ms. Nicole’s students had great things to say about their hat-making and hat-wearing:

“This hat is way too crazy, like super crazy!” ~ Brooke

“I love my crazy hat because it’s silly!” ~ Keaton

“I’m a good folder, huh?” ~ Andrew

Wednesday was “Volunteer Reading Day”! Our school had many, many special guests come in to read to students in classes throughout the grade levels.

Parents, grandparents, aunts, teachers and staff chose wonderful and engaging books to read to students…

One of the parents of a student in Ms. Nicole’s class read to the students.

When Ms. Annie’s fifth grade students went to Spanish class with Ms. Elsa, they were in for a special surprise when Hector – one of the members of our school’s maintenance team – came to read a book in Spanish to the class.

Hector read a page in Spanish of El Gusto del Mercado Mexicano, and student Harrison read the same text in English. The duo took turns reading one page at a time. Ms. Elsa said it was exciting having them read together.
