“If you’d never been born, well then what would you be? You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree! …Or worse than all that, you might be a Wasn’t! A Wasn’t has no fun at all. No, he doesn’t.” – Dr. Seuss “Happy Birthday to You”
March 2 was Dr. Seuss’s birthday, a national observance known as Read Across America Day. Aurora Public Schools students honored the author’s life, legacy and love for writing by feasting on green eggs and ham, reading his poetic tales, decorating their schools and more.
APS thanks City of Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan for his time with students at Aurora Quest K-8, Aurora Fire Department Chief Mike Garcia for stopping by APS Early Beginnings to read to students, Aurora Public Library staff for reading to students at Aurora Frontier P-8 and every staff member, parent and community member who celebrated this fun-filled day with students. This exemplifies the APS 2020 Strategic Plan core belief that students, families, staff and community members share the responsibility for student achievement.
Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!
