Dr. Seuss Night

During the month of March, DES like many elementary schools throughout the country, celebrate Dr. Seuss.  Theodor Seuss Geisel, who was born on March 2, 1904, is an American author who wrote many children's classics such as Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat.  Many people know these great works by Dr. Seuss, but Dr. Seuss worked in advertising as an illustrator and was also a political cartoonist.  Before he was an award winning author, Dr. Seuss won an Academy Award for Documentary Feature in 1947.  During World War II, Dr. Seuss then known as Army Captain Theodor S. Geisel created comics about a mosquito named "Ann" who infected soldiers with malaria.  The comic's purpose was to keep soldiers from contracting this deadly disease.  This work helped to save many lives.   For these and many more reasons, we stop to celebrate this icon's birthday.  The celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday often leads to a broader celebration of reading. DES will host a Dr. Seuss Night on Friday, March 2, 2018
