The late children’s book author Dr. Seuss would have turned 111 years old on March 2. Most Dallas ISD campuses celebrated his legacy early on Friday, Feb. 27, by staging events to celebrate wacky Seuss characters while emphasizing the importance of reading.
The commemoration of Seuss’ birthday is an annual districtwide event.
At Mount Auburn Elementary School, there were enough volunteer readers to fill all 36 classrooms in the morning to read to the students. Dallas ISD Board President Miguel Solis and Dallas ISD Police Chief Craig Miller were among them. Several staff members and students dressed as Seuss characters as well.
