Dr. Seuss 2012
This is not a good photo with the glare from hallway overhead lights. However, it does give a good idea of our 2012 celebration for Dr. Seuss' birthday.
This year our theme was "Go Green" in honor of The Lorax book (and movie). The hallways were full of Truffala trees and children's work with ideas on how to help save our environment. My library display focused on our Lorax pencils that came from recycled newspapers. All students received a pencil; these are pretty neat because when they are sharpened, it's obvious they came from old newspapers!
Mrs. Wright arranged getting seeds to send home with each child and we hope "Go Green" results in some beautiful flowers or delicious vegetables in Charlestown School family homes this summer.
The spirit of the day even extended to our Office when Mrs. Haney came up with the idea that perhaps yummy truffles came from Truffala trees. Wouldn't we all like to pick chocolate truffles off trees in our yards? Happy Dr. Seuss Day to one and all!
