Dr. Seuss was the Craze at Greendale Elementary School

A woman is dressed up in a black and white cat costume with a red and white hat on standing in with two students in front of a Read Across America green bulletin board. Students, teachers and visiting readers plunged into the world of Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day on Monday, March 2. This is a nationwide reading event that takes place every year on Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

It encourages people, young and old, to take time out and read.  In the morning, students were greeted by a very enthusiastic Cat in the Hat in the bus lane in front of the school. Later, Cat in the Hat read a poem on morning news and visited a few classrooms to share some books by Dr. Seuss. Special guests dropped by to read favorite Dr. Seuss stories to the primary grades. Decorations made by PTO member Beth Carmack and friends were visible in the hallways and on bulletin boards throughout the building. In addition to daily trivia questions, PTO members and parent volunteers prepared and delivered decorated cupcakes, pencils and bookmarks celebrating this special day. Thanks to all of our volunteers for making Monday a very “Seussical” kind of day!
