Dr. Seuss Day is on Thursday March 1st!

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on 2 March 1904. Better known as beloved author Dr. Seuss, he is responsible for creating some of our most cherished childhood literary characters like the Grinch, the Cat in the Hat, Horton, and the Lorax. We celebrate his contribution to literature and childhood imagination every year. Since we will be out of school on March 2nd, we get to celebrate a day early on March 1st.

Students can dress up like their favorite Dr. Seuss character!

Principal Kolb will be reading her favorite Dr. Seuss books to all of the kindergarten through third grade classes!
