It was a week of volunteers, including veteran Manteca Police Officer April Smith, reading storybooks to the children at Sequoia School that ended with a visit from Cat in the Hat along with green eggs for breakfast.
Kindergarten through third graders enjoyed the Dr. Seuss breakfast concoction on Friday as part of the Read Across America effort.
Yard duty supervisor Sharon Carroll and primary teacher Twyla Engel were dressed in Cat and the Hat costumes to make the breakfast more magical for the children.
During the week some 20 retired teachers, community members and former students read Dr. Seuss books to the children in their classrooms. They were treated to a puppet show on Wednesday.
Upper grade students from the fourth through the eighth grades partnered with younger boys and girls in kindergarten through the third grade to share the joy of reading.
Student volunteers from a seventh-grade class helped set up and clean up the cafeteria tables for the teachers before and after each session.
