Springfield’s Milton Bradley Elementary School Friday topped off it’s month-long Dr. Seuss birthday observance with a day-long Read-A-Thon.
Each of the school’s more than 500 students participated in the Read-A-Thon, which included Mayor Domenic Sarno reading from one of his favorite Dr. Seuss stories.
The tribute extended into every classroom and hallway.
Principal Kristen Hughes epitomized the dress code for students and teachers alike. There was a theme to this Seuss tribute.
“Each day we read a new quote from Dr. Seuss and the children talk about what lesson they learned about life from his quotes. That’s the big thing that we’re doing here,” said Hughes.
The location of the Milton Bradley School is a constant reminder about Dr. Seuss. The school borders Mulberry Street, the birthplace of the famed children’s author.
