LISBON — A highlight of the annual Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration held at Lisbon Community School on March 6, were the bulletin boards created by students and their teachers.

“Grades prekindergarten through grade four participated,” said Monica Millhime, Lisbon community resource coordinator. “Teachers and students decided on themes, the layouts and the designs of their Dr. Seuss-themed boards and were very excited to have completed their contest entry by the night of the event.”

Over 400 were invited to tour the campus to vote for their favorite display prior to the featured guest readers.

“The energy was kinetic throughout the school leading up to the evening events. Students also had an opportunity to tour the displays and were quick to compliment the various participating classrooms. Entries featured some of the all-time favorite Seuss books and provided lessons in creativity, teamwork, strategic planning and the ability to meet deadlines,” said Millhime.

The people’s choice for the best classroom presentations were: first, Jessica Swindlehurst, grade one teacher, featuring the Lorax; tie for second, with Beth Gilbert, grade one teacher, featuring “Oh, the Places You’ll Go,” and  Phyllis St. Pierre, grade two class, “The Shape of Me”; third, Deb Furrow, kindergarten class, “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.”

All classrooms received a certificate of participation and the winning classrooms received iTune gift cards thanks to the sponsorship provided by the LCS Parent Teacher Group.
