This date was chosen because beloved children's author Dr. Seuss was born on March 2. This year, Park River Area school did something extra fun to join this special cele- bration of reading to celebrate Dr. Seuss's work - Read Across America week - and 500,000 minutes of READ- ING by PRA Ponies! Each day had a theme to correspond to a Dr. Seuss book title. Students dressed according to each day's theme. Monday, March 3 was "My Many Colored Days" where students wore as many different colors as possible. Tuesday, March 4 was "Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!" Students wore school colors in honor of the day. Wednesday, March 5 was "Cat in the Hat" where stu- dents were asked to wear a crazy hat. Thursday, March 6 was dedicated to "The Foot Book" when students wore crazy socks. Friday, March 7 was des- ignated "I am NOT Going to Get Up Today!" day ar)d stu- dents donned their pajamas First Grade Photos: Submitted; Kindergarten Photo: Larry Biri Top: Alysha Coffman's kindergarten class made their own hats for "Cat in the Hat" day.

First gcade00 Dr. 00with a By Barb Forsgren PARK RIVER, N.D.- What a week the 1st graders have had! Along with the rest of the elementary students, we have been celebrating Read Across America by dressing up, reading Dr. Seuss stories and having some fun snacks! On Monday the two first grade classes read a Dr. Seuss book with a partner, enjoyed "real" green eggs and ham and "sweet" green eggs and ham made from pretzels and M&Ms as we celebrated Dr. Seuss's March 2nd birthday. On Wednesday we enjoyed an- other Dr. Seuss treat- we were able to eat some yummy "Cat in the Hal' hats that were made with Oreos and red gummy lifesavers. We used frosting to glue them all together. Yum! During the rest of the week we read more books while dressing in crazy hats, socks, colorful clothes, Aggie colors and PJs. Of course all the extra activities made our week extra fun. We ended the week by putting on our creative and wacky hats to draw and color a "made-up" critter just like Dr. Seuss would create. You'll have to stop by the school to check out our artwork. Our goal for March is to read as many Dr. Seuss books as we can. We are off to a good start! Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
