Students at Turnberry Elementary School kicked off Dr. Seuss festivities for the week. It's Read-Across-America week in celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2. At Turnberry Elementary School, kindergarten classrooms had mystery readers visit, they colored crazy socks and made stretchy Oobleck out of glue. Oobleck is named after the strange material that falls from the sky in the Dr. Seuss book, "Bartholomew and the Oobleck." Turnberry Principal Brett Minne was the first Mystery Reader for the day on Feb. 27 and he read the book "Fox in Socks" to kindergarten students.
Other 27J schools are participating in Read-Across-America week including Henderson Elementary School that's having spirit week for Dr. Seuss. Monday was Red and Blue Day; Tuesday is Crazy Sock Day; Wednesday is Twin Day or Thing One and Thing Two Day; Thursday is "Bring a stuffed animal to school" Day  and Friday is wear green day for "Green Eggs and Ham."
Pennock Elementary School will have community readers come to their school on Thursday to read to classes throughout the School, and Thimmig is having teachers and guests read to classrooms. The 27J Nutrition Department is joining in the Dr. Seuss fun by cooking up Green Eggs and Ham for student lunches on March 2.
