On March 1, University Park Elementary School held its annual Dr. Seuss breakfast celebration. The annual event celebrates the life of beloved children’s author, Theodore Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, and highlights March as Read Across America Month. The day began with a student sing-a-long while parent volunteers served toast with green eggs and ham. Students enjoyed listening to excerpts of “The Cat In the Hat.” There were even guest appearances by the mayor of University Park and a few of Prince George’s finest. Earlier in the week for Read Across America Month, Prince George’s County officers read Dr. Seuss stories to the Pre-K and kindergarten classes.
