Keewatin Elementary School had its 8th Annual Dr Suess Day of Reading with 18 readers from area fire departments, law enforcement, radio station, and Nashwauk High School students. The program again this year was coordinated by teacher Angel Frings. From kindergarten to sixth grade, the students were assembled in the gym, as each reader was introduced to the students. Students then returned to their classrooms to listen to the readers.

“At Keewatin Elementary, we celebrate Dr. Suess week each year in order to pass along a love for the literary works of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Suess), and creativity in the middle of our long northern winter,” said Principal Anne Olson-Reiners. “Thanks to first grade teacher, Angel Frings, for the organization of the event, which includes a week of themed dress-up days.”

Second grader Lexi Wilson said, “I liked it when the officer came and read to us.”

Third grader, Kyhie Weber said, “I had fun, and Nick was a good reader. Lot of the kids had nice outfits.”

“I got to see a lot of new people I haven’t seen before and learned about them,” said sixth grader Jade Baumann.

Plans are being made for next year’s event.
