On March 2, Read Across America Day, many of Talbot Community School staff members dressed as their favorite book characters. Principal Ann Hanna dressed as a tiger – Talbot’s mascot and a character from “The Circus Ship” by Chris Van Dusen.
Hanna also posed with the Portland Sea Dogs’ Slugger, an annual visitor who proved a very good listener as he joined students listening to books being read aloud. Talbot also hosted guest readers from The Boys & Girls Club, Portland Public Library, Portland Parks & Recreation, Maine Mariners and cPort Credit Union. Two classrooms received signed posters from the visiting Maine Mariner players and two classrooms received a free book for each student, courtesy of cPort Credit Union.
