Dr. Seuss Day is a birthday celebration of the famous author. Join the Center for Community Engagement and Service and Read Across America in celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday! Volunteer visit several District elementary schools to read and play games with students.

Dr. Seuss Day festivities represent more than just the celebration of a century of literary achievements by one of America's most beloved authors; the use of rhyming patterns make his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be life-long readers. More importantly, literacy is a fundamental tool that helps ensure students reach their highest potential and develop into well-rounded leaders of tomorrow!!

Last year we collaborated with three District elementary schools to promote literacy. Volunteers read to children between grades pre-kindergarten and second at either Brightwood Elementary, Powell Elementary or the Latin American Montessori Bilingual.

We honored the 50th anniversary of both, the Civil Rights Act and the Wilderness Act. Volunteers read from one of two Dr. Seuss books - The Lorax and The Sneetches.

Coffee and transportation will be provided for volunteers.
