To commemorate the birthday of Theodore Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss, Children’s Aid College Prep Charter School held a day of activities to celebrate his talents last Friday. Staff dressed in costumes of characters from Dr. Seuss stories, and the school was decorated from floor to ceiling with student artwork and colorful images from the books. Kicking off the event in the morning, administrators served delicious green eggs and ham to parents of the charter school students. Later in the day, students read together and participated in arts and crafts, making Lorax masks, Cats in the Hat, huge flower bouquets and other well-known objects from Dr. Seuss books. Students also enjoyed snacks such as cookies that looked like green eggs or ones that had famous Dr. Seuss phrases written on them.

Richard Buery Jr., a Dr. Seuss fan and the CEO and President of The Children’s Aid Society, stopped by to share in the excitement, where he had a chance to read with the students.
