MATTYDALE — On Friday, March 4, St. Margaret’s School celebrated Dr. Seuss’ 115th birthday. Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel, March 2, 1904–Sept. 24, 1991) wrote children’s books such as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” The pupils dressed to impress Dr. Seuss with their unique creations.  Michael McAuliff, the school principal, read his favorite Dr. Seuss book to the whole school, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go.” He also served green eggs and ham for lunch to the whole school. Later in the day, the students celebrated National Read Across America Day by stopping everything at 1 p.m. to read. (Photos courtesy Lisa Perla)
