The students and staff at Denair Elementary Charter Academy are having fun this week, marking the birthday of Dr. Seuss on March 2 while also celebrating Read Across America week.
“It’s a chance to promote reading and inspire students to read,” said Principal Kelly Beard.
The DECA student council has identified a different dress-up them for each day, encouraging students as well as staff to come to school in non-traditional outfits.
Monday was “Fox in a Socks” with crazy socks and hair, Tuesday was “Put Me in the Zoo” for spotted or dotted clothing, Wednesday was pajama day and Thursday was “Cat in the Hat” twin day.
Friday, everyone is urged to come as their favorite Dr. Seuss character. Beard and her third-grade daughter, Mackenzie, plan to be Thing I and Thing II. Learning director Laura Cardenas will be the Cat in the Hat.
“It’s been a fun week,” Beard said. “Everyone always looks forward to it.”
