DWU to celebrate 21st annual Dr. Seuss Carnival

Posted on

The Dakota Wesleyan University Future Teachers’ Organization will host its 21st annual Dr. Seuss Carnival from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 23, in the L.B. Williams Elementary commons and gym area.

“We are excited to once again put together this carnival for families in the Mitchell and surrounding communities,” said René Pruitt, associate professor of education and FTO adviser.

This event is free and open to pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade children. All children must be accompanied by an adult. There will be opportunities to play games, earn prizes and read Dr. Seuss books. Every pre-K through fifth-grade child will receive a free book.

“The purpose of the carnival is to bring families together for an exciting morning and to share the fun of reading,” Pruitt said. “Our education majors, other DWU students including the football players, staff and faculty, volunteer to read to kids, run games and activities.”

Returning this year will be the Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 who will be running amok and posing for photos.
