WESTPORT, Conn. – Green eggs and ham isn’t a common menu item at Westport’s Saugatuck Elementary School, but in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, students and staff alike enjoyed the rare delicacy.

The green cuisine, consisting of spinach, eggs and ham on a bagel, was the lunch of choice Friday for95 students, teachers and staff, a press release from the school announced.

In further celebrating the author’s birthday, and in recognition of the second-annual Read Across America event, Principal Julie Droller instituted DEARS — Drop Everything And Read Seuss.

Throughout the day, Droller, Assistant Principal Deborah Fritz-Bradeen, physical education teacher Mr. McLaughlin, reading specialists Ms. Sherriff and Ms. Mennie, and school nurse Ms. Sandri visited various classrooms and read Dr. Seuss stories with the children.

Students in Mr. Von Euler's fifth grade class took the celebration one step further and made gooey oobleck, inspired by Seuss' “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.”

The spirit of community reading won’t end with Seuss’ birthday. Throughout the month, the Saugatuck Elementary School Caring Council is sponsoring book drive to benefit Norwalk Hospital and an area library.
