From staff reports
Fair Elementary students last week celebrated National Read Across
America Day, held yearly to celebrate the spirit of reading, and to
celebrate the birthday of children’s book author Dr. Seuss.
Theodor Seuss Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss) was born on March 2,
1904 in Springfield, Mass. He would have turned 109-years-old on
Saturday. But his spirit of weird, lovable creatures and rhyming fun
lived on as pre-school through first-grade students were invited have
fun and relax while visitors and teachers read Dr. Seuss books and
other children’s books. Students then participated in Dr. Seuss and
other reading activities.
Local Rotary Club members, parents, grandparents and others stopped
by during the morning at the school to read to the students with many
of the participants reading Dr. Seuss books such as the Cat in the Hat.
The students also received a special visit from the Cat in the Hat.
