On Wednesday, March 7, Jumpstart-Queens at St. John’s
University, in collaboration with Kappa Delta Pi, hosted a Dr.
Seuss event at two of our preschool programs we partner with:
Starlight Child Center and Bright Beginnings. We had 13 Corps
Members and volunteers and worked in 5 preschool classrooms with
about 70 children in the Jamaica area. The volunteers read
Green Eggs and Ham with the kids and then made their own
Sam-I-Am breakfast plates and Dr. Seuss hats, while discussing
colors, foods, and rhymes. The children wore green shirts in honor
of the book and event and everyone in attendance had a
splendiferous (to use a Dr. Seuss word) time!
We want to thank everyone for their participation!
