Park City School District elementary schools are still looking for volunteers to read to students in celebration of children's book author Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 3. For every volunteer, the Park City Education Foundation (PCEF) will donate a book to the classroom's library.
According to PCEF annual fund and office manager Abby Funabiki, volunteers are more than welcome to dress in costume for the occasion. For more information or to volunteer, contact the PCEF at 435-615-0235.
