In the afternoon the first grade heard from their teacher Mrs. Lott about the life of Dr. Seuss and they read his first book, “And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street.”
Later this week, the first grade class will also take the opportunity to read to the TYKE students.  Other guest readers during this special week will include foreign exchange student Sam Columbo, senior Derek Luzum and Mr. Sheffield.
