*Our next awards assembly will be Tuesday, February 28th at 2:30 PM in the middle school gym.  Our character trait this month is FAIRNESS!

Dr. Seuss was born in March, on the second day in fact.  This year we’ll celebrate his birthday for five days to be exact. The first day we’ll wear crazy socks, the next day we’ll wear shirts from places we have seen.  There’ll be a day for crazy hats and then we will wear something stylish with a pocket. And something to put in there: a stuffed bear, a dog or wocket!  The last day we will wear our pajamas, can’t wait to see. With these specials dress up days we’ll honor his memory.  And all the great stories he wrote for you and me!

Monday, February 27th: Wear Crazy Socks and read Fox in Socks
