INMAN – The staff at Inman Elementary School had designated Wednesday, Feb. 28, as “Wacky Wednesday” as part of Reading Across America and celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Students, teachers and staff were encouraged to dress “wacky” when they came to school that day.

It seemed to be a fitting description for the morning.

Students were encouraged to get “wacky’” after teachers passed out books Kansas author Jefferson Knapp donated to students during a special assembly that was held at the start of the school day.

The Inman High School Pep Band played music as teachers passed out books to their students. Several confetti “bombs” were released from the gymnasium’s ceiling, as students were encouraged to dance and celebrate receiving a book.

“Anytime we can get kids excited about reading, we’ll do it,” IES Principal Jo McFadden said.
