TEMECULA – The Keegan Academy charter school celebrated Dr. Suess’ birthday on Friday, March 7 with Mayor Maryann Edwards reading “The Places You’ll Go.”
Mayor Edwards adorned her head with a creative hat in honor of the silly characters from Dr. Seuss’ books and engaged the students with her dynamic storytelling.
Mayor Edwards, also CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest County, maintains an office at the club’s Old Town Temecula site, where Keegan Academy leases classroom space.
As part of the celebration, students also read “Star Belly Sneetches” and invented mathematical function machines similar to the “star putter on-er” machine in the book.
“The students showed their creativity and worked together to think critically about how the input of function machines affects the output,” said Sonja Clause, principal of Keegan Academy. “Our students did an awesome job communicating their understanding of functions and we are proud of the initiative students took to make their projects.”
“Some crave their Seuss with table set and eggs served just so…but I prefer my Seuss with youth under a giant bow,” said Mayor Maryann Edwards.
Keegan Academy, a division of the Academy of Arts and Sciences, offers children experiences including art, technology, Spanish, and community outreach at its Temecula location. For more information, call (951) 595-9095.
