March 2nd of each year is celebrated for being Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Read Across America. This year, thanks to a kind donation from the Smith County Drug and Alcohol Council, we were able to purchase books to give to the K-3rd of Thunder Ridge Elementary. We will also say Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss with a special treat for the kids this Friday.
