We celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday at Larsen Elementary on Tuesday, March 2nd. Every year, Mr. Johnson, Larsen Elementary’s Principal gives out a Dr. Seuss book to random students. This year he gave two per grade level. The lucky winners get to take home and keep Dr. Seuss’ The Foot Book.

Mrs. Eckhardt’s Kindergarten class celebrated Dr Seuss’ birthday by making hats like the Cat in the Hat, reading Dr. Seuss classic books, and eating Green Eggs and Ham. Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!
