Students relax and celebrate Dr. Seuss birthday

Students throughout the Guthrie school district spent a day in their pajamas and some even brought their pillows and blankets to their classroom as they spent the day reading in honor of Dr. Seuss Day.

Along with their night gear, students were spotted wearing the famous red and white-striped hats while reading Dr. Seuss books and sharing stories.

The second grade students in Jamie Alexander’s classroom got a special surprise when Superintendent Dr. Mike Simpson, donning his own Dr. Seuss hat, came in and read them a book. Afterwards, Dr. Simpson urged all the students to try to read a book each night before going to bed.

The National Education Association helps sponsor the celebration of Read Across America which is the nation’s largest reading event, which is tied to the March 2 birthday of the author known as Dr. Seuss.

    Just not the same as Jon “Cat in the Hat” Gumerson showing up in full Cat in the Hat suit! I loved that man. He is missed.

    The best thing to do rather than forcing yourself to work, is to take a break and breathe that fresh afternoon air.

    Very often, freebies are included to sweeten a deal.

    It should be able to change like a chameleon and
    look natural in every new surroundings.
