Greywolf, Haller students celebrate Seuss, Read Across America day

“The more that you read, the more things you will know,” Dr. Seuss once wrote. “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Hundreds of Sequim students joined the millions across the country in thumbing through books — many of them by Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss — as part of Read Across America Day, a year-round reading motivation program that called for children to celebrate reading on March 2 in honor of Seuss’ birthday.

A reported 500 students from Sequim High School walked from their main campus to Helen Haller Elementary School to read to their younger counterparts while older grade-level students read to younger classmates at Greywolf Elementary School in Carlsborg.
