Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Celebration at Bradley Elementary
The National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Cat-A-Van tour got a rock-star welcome at Bradley Elementary . Hundreds of students decked out in the red-striped stovepipe hats made famous by Dr. Seuss, along with the Keenan High School marching band, greeted an entourage of national, state and local leaders.
“The Cat in the Hat,” “Thing One” and “Thing Two” also made an appearance. During the event, representatives from the NEA read Green Eggs and Ham to students. Representatives of Renaissance Dental also encouraged students to make oral hygiene, like reading, a daily habit. Renaissance Dental donated $500 to purchase books and other items for Bradley’s library. Each student received a a toothbrush, a Dr. Seuss book for their home library and other goodies.
