Students and staff dressed up as some iconic Dr. Seuss characters on Monday, March 3 to help kick off a month long reading celebration at Lakeview Elementary.
Librarian Claire Byl helped organize the annual event which lasts throughout the month of March and includes various reading activities. In previous years, students have celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday and have had a Drop Everything and Read Day where students carry books with them wherever they go, waiting for an intercom announcement to drop everything and read anytime throughout the day. During the entire month, students also track their reading minutes and try to be the class with the most accumulated reading minutes by the end of March.
The kick off dress up day was a big success with many students donning costumes as The Cat in the Hat, Things 1, 2 and 3, The Lorax and other well-known characters that sprang from the mind of the iconic author.
Sunday, March 2 was the 110th birthday of Theodor Geisel, who wrote as Dr. Seuss.
