To celebrate Read Across America Week, the 5-year-old kindergarten students joined in the parade wearing the Dr. Seuss hats they had made themselves. Many lively hats depicting our favorite Dr. Seuss stories were displayed on top of smiling faces as the students paraded around the track waving at the cheering crowd.
