HCS Students Celebrate Reading with Dr. Seuss
March 2, 2017
Students across Huntsville, along with kids across America, are celebrating a love of reading by honoring the man who created some of the most beloved children’s books, Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known as Dr. Seuss.
At Farley Elementary, students from the entire school participated in a parade while dressed as their favorite character. Volunteers, representing a variety of professions, also took time to share their favorite stories with many of the classes. At Morris Elementary, students got a visit from Huntsville City Schools Interim Superintendent, Tom Drake. The school held a special assembly in the cafeteria, where Mr. Drake read a story about a horse, while the pictures were displayed on a large screen.
“Read Across America” is held every year in March, to mark the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, born March 2, 1904, who penned 46 children’s books, including the best-selling titles “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” The annual event is a joint effort promoted by the National Education Association and Random House.
