A BIG thank you to Officer Jeff Poussan and Officer Jacob Walters, with the California Highway Patrol, who came and read to our classes on Friday, March 3, to celebrate Read-Across-America week.

Fifteen classes at Tompkins Elementary School signed up and enjoyed having the officers come and read Dr. Seuss.
