Holy Family School students, from left, Matthew Pfeifer, Nicholas Frisch and Trent Reardon play with "oobleck" during Dr. Seuss Day March 4 at the school in Lindsay. The sticky substance is the subject of Dr. Seuss' 1949 book "Bartholomew and the Oobleck." Students were treated to the movie "Horton Hears a Who!," petted two live "cats in hats" and played Dr. Seuss-related computer games, along with bingo, art projects, writing tongue twisters and reading "The Cat in the Hat." They also enjoyed eating green eggs for lunch and a "read and feed" to end the day.

More than $1,900 was raised through Irish soda bread sales for the tuition assistance fund at St. Pius X/St. Leo.
