Celebrating the Works of Dr. Seuss!

This week, we will celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America. We will explore the works of Dr. Seuss and discover how his books can help us become better readers.


On Friday, March 4, the cafeteria will serve "green eggs and ham" to our students. The cost of this late breakfast is $2 per student. Please send in cash only by Thursday if your child will participate.


Our class will have a theme for each day this week based on one of the works of Dr. Seuss:


Monday - Horton Hears a Who

Tuesday - Yertle the Turtle

Wednesday - The Cat in the Hat (Dr. Seuss' birthday; Students please wear red uniform polo.)

Thursday - The Lorax ($2 due for Friday's green eggs and ham.)
