Fort Calhoun Elementary had a blast celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. They had many different dress up themes, contests and story times. Some favorites were MIxed Up Monday and Wacky Wednesday. Students also had the opportunity to enter the “decorate a hat at home contest” and make a Seuss Soup Snack to enjoy during their time reading Dr. Seuss books throughout the week. The week wrapped up with an assembly to announce contest winners. A highlight of the week was watching the students who won the contests race their teachers and Mr. Wagner in various events.
Winners of the decorate your door contest were Mrs. Gross for PreK-2nd and Mr. Teeter for 3rd-6th. Mrs Royuk was the overall winner.
The Winners for the Dress up days were Ellie Duros in Preschool, Dehlia Hallberg in Kindergarten, Will Duros in 1st Grade, Natalie Lammers in 2nd Grade, Samantha Thomas in 3rd Grade, AJ Pace in 4th Grade, Grace Genoways in 5th Grade, and Payton Pohlad in 6th Grade.

There was also a contest to see who could be quietest in the lunch room. These winners were Kindergarten, Third Grade and 6th Grade. Their teachers were rewarded by getting a shaving cream “hat.” It was a lot of fun.
