West Liberty-Salem Elementary recently hosted its second annual Literacy Night, with more than 300 students in attendance at the “Seussville” themed night of crafts, story time, science experiments, games and face painting.  

Students were given passports to lead them to the 12 different activity stations. Guest readers read Dr. Seuss books in the library, book bingo took place in the cafeteria and students made Seuss Soup in another classroom.

One of the highlights of the evening was when “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” stuck Elementary Principal Aaron Hollar to the wall with duct tape because “he got stuck on reading.” Students gathered to see how long the tape would hold him up. 

The Dr. Seuss book Horton Hears a Who also provided the inspiration for an egg drop experiment, where students were challenged to create a contraption that would keep an egg safe while being dropped from the second-story balcony in the gymnasium.
