Dr. Seuss Literacy Carnival

The Dr. Seuss Literacy Carnival was a huge success. The carnival is held annually at Palacios Elementary. Thirteen reading stations featured activities for every grade level. Cake, punch, hotdogs, popcorn, and cotton candy were served to approximately 380 students and parents that came out to honor Dr. Seuss' birthday. Special thanks to PSJA Education Foundation for awarding a grant to Librarian Mrs. Linda Hinojosa to sponsor the event. The grant was used to purchase food items and books given to each child that attended. A special thank you to the parent volunteers, teachers and staff that participated.
