Thursday, March 3rd for Dr. Seuss Day, Interact Club did their annual book reading event at local elementary schools. Several Rangers got to read kid-favorites, such as ¨The Cat in the Hat¨ and ¨Green Eggs and Ham” to elementary students.
Although many years have passed since high schoolers were in elementary school, those who participate in the Dr. Seuss celebration agreed that it has stuck to its core purpose.
Interact’s Vice President Leena Kahlon, ‘18, said, “It honestly felt so great being back in elementary school, I forgot how much fun recess was! The best part was getting to try actual green eggs and ham. It warms my heart seeing schools continue to participate in Dr. Seuss Day.”
This event has become an annual activity for the club that the officers look forward to every year. They want to continue this activity as long as they can, and hope that children continue to value the importance of novels.
Interact’s President Karina Montes, ‘17, said, “It gives us a chance to give back to our elementary schools, as well as the opportunity to create memories with younger students who really enjoy our company and have a love for books!”
