Sending Dr. Seuss Birthday Wishes Across the Hall


Parkway Elementary School kindergarten and first-graders celebrated popular children’s author Dr. Seuss’ 112th birthday with a week-long celebration.

Beginning Monday Feb. 29, students created their own “Cat in the Hat” caps, decorated the hallways with pictures of Dr. Seuss characters such as “Cat,” “Thing 1,” “Thing 2” and “Horton,” and were inspired to wear crazy socks and mismatched clothing to go along with “Fox in Socks” and “Wacky Wednesday.”  

Later that week, students arrived at school dressed in their pajamas and carrying blankets, pillows and their favorite Dr. Seuss book to celebrate his birthday.

After invited guests arrived, students recited a special oath, promising to read every night.
