KEARNS — Hundreds of elementary students were heard rhyming in unison this Friday as they participated in Dr. Seuss Day, part of the National Education Association's Read Across America initiative.
Organized by United Way of Salt Lake, volunteers from J.C. Penney read with students at Oquirrh Hills Elementary School and participated in a number of other activities, including a school-wide assembly and a number of engaging educational games. Some volunteers have even tapped into the spirit of the event and came dressed in Dr. Seuss-themed outfits, including a full Cat In The Hat costume.
The national event, now in its 16th year, is designed to encourage students to find the fun in reading.
