Throughout last week, Robert B Turner Elementary School celebrated the birthday of Dr Seuss.  The students not only got to wear crazy themed clothing during the week, but also were challenged to read Dr Seuss books.

According to teacher, Julie Case, the school set a goal for the students to read 1,000 books combined  for the week.  For each book read by a student, they got to put a blue star with the title of the book they read up in the main hallway.  By Thursday night, the students blew past the goal and read 1,629 books and covered the hallway with stars.

On Friday, the school then held a fun Dr Seuss themed assembly.  Teachers and even Principal Wayne Reece got in on the fun and ate some green eggs and ham.  Teacher Jason Alexander also dressed up in a great Cat in the Hat costume.

The students really enjoyed the program and the week, celebrating Dr Seuss.  “It was exciting because we got to wear hats,” Xander Mahl said and Emma Brothers said that she really liked reading all the books.
