Culver Elementary School held its annual Green Eggs and Ham dinner on March 1, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Some 287 students, parents, teachers and other community members enjoyed a dinner of scrambled green eggs, ham, toast and beverage to celebrate Dr. Seuss, Theodor Geisel's, birthday on March 2.
This event is part of National Education Association's Read Across America, celebrating reading in all schools.
After dinner, parents and friends shared reading time with their kids. Twenty-eight kids participated in the costume contest, dressing up as popular characters from Dr. Seuss books, with "Cat in the Hat" being the most popular. All participants received candy and balloons.
To end the night's activities, a drawing was held, and winners received new books. Special thanks go out to all the volunteers who helped prepare the dinner, serve, decorate and clean up after.
