Voorhies Students Celebrate Reading with Dr. Suess Musical

March 6, 2020 - The second grade students at Voorhies Elementary celebrated the writings of Dr. Suess with a special musical, or “Suessical”, based on his popular books.  Students, parents and family members were invited to watch the performances which took place in the multi-purpose room at the school.

The students put on three shows throughout the day, which highlighted some of Suess’ most recognizable characters like the Cat-in-the-Hat, the Whos from Whoville and others.  The performance included student created props, singing and choreography.

Erick Casallas, principal at Voorhies, said, “An event like this is important for Voorhies students because the arts are the things that can awaken your soul and make you feel alive.  I take pride in doing events like this, and I am really glad that I have teachers who challenge their students to be involved and students who are willing to put themselves out there and perform.”

Congratulations Voorhies second graders for a wonderful show, and a big thank you to Leslie Thompson, second grade teacher at Voorhies, who helped coordinate and direct the entire performance!
