SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB)- Tomorrow our very own Springfield native, Dr. Seuss, would be celebrating his 109-th birthday. To keep his legacy alive, students from elementary schools all around Springfield celebrated their favorite author today.
At Samuel Bowles Elementary School, students had green eggs and ham for breakfast. In the story, Sam does not like green eggs and ham. However some first graders today enjoyed the meal. “The eggs tasted the same… kind of like my mom makes, said first grader, Katherine St. Amand. Students were served their breakfast by their principal, Thomas Mazza.
Students were suited in their red and white stripped hats and Seuss artwork decorated the walls. In honor of their hometown author’s birthday, students were also collecting coins to raise money for a new Dr. Seuss Museum. Local businesses agree to match funds raised by each school.
Across town at Talmadge School today, students listened as their teachers read aloud. After the story, they wrote reflections on the story. They even sang Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss.
