Members of the High School’s Book Club and National Honor Society visited the Elementary School to read to students, with special hats and art projects made to recognize Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  Dr. Seuss, a.k.a. Theodor Geisel, is the author and illustrator of the classic “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham” books and other timeless classics.

At Otisville, the youngest students also made special hats and related projects to recognize Dr. Seuss’ birthday, with some classes even trying “real” green eggs and ham prepared for them by their teachers.
