Dr. Seuss Week Comes to Ryerson Elementary
March 6, 2020 - Ryerson students recently enjoyed a week of “Seussical” fun as the school celebrated the works of beloved author Dr. Seuss.
Each day of the week had a special Dr. Seuss themed activity as well as a Dr. Seuss inspired spirit day.
On Monday, the week began with a Dr. Seuss Birthday tribute in the form of an all school assembly. The Ryerson Reader’s Theater Group – a collection of teachers and staff – preformed a skit celebrating various Dr. Seuss characters. Students loved seeing their teachers on stage!
On Tuesday, the day began with another assembly where Principal Kelly Spooner read the classic Horton Hears a Who. The book fit perfectly with Ryerson’s school-wide kindness theme this year.
On Wednesday, students came to school with wacky hair or a crazy hat and Dr. Seuss movies played during lunch time for students.
On Thursday, the Theme was Oh the Places You’ll Go! Classroom teachers moved around the school, swapping classes to read to new groups of students.
On Friday, it was Dr. Seuss Spirit Day. Students were invited to come to school dressed as their favorite Dr. Seuss character.
The week coincided with Read Across America, a national initiative to motivate students to read and bring the joys of reading to all students.
