Caption for all three photos is as follows: Cherrydale in the News. Cherrydale Primary School kids, wearing red/white stripped hats ala Cat in the Hat celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2. As part of the Read Across America event, students displayed their one-of-a-kind penguins (inspired by Mambo the Penguin from Happy Feet) and launched their “I Did A Read” (Iditarod) reading challenge to replicate the 1,000 mile cross-Alaska race. The parka-garbed kids on the I Did A Read came in pulling a wagon with a huge stuffed dog, then they stopped and pulled out books to read. Fun stuff.
