For Immediate Release:
Louisville Metro Council
Contact: Tony Hyatt 574-4137/526-3622
Councilwoman Attica Scott will spend some time in five District 1 elementary schools bringing an important message to students from a beloved children’s storyteller.
“I am looking forward to being involved in the Every One Reads program in the Jefferson County Public Schools,” says Scott. “I will be reading about something I am very concerned about which is why “The Lorax” will help me talk about the environment with students.”
Scott will read the classic 1971 Dr. Suess story to students on Thursday, March 1. “The Lorax” tells the tale of a small defender of the environment who wants everyone to change their habits and start caring about the plants and trees around them.
“It is a timeless story,” says Scott.
The Councilwoman will also dress for the occasion as another famous Dr. Suess character the Cat in the Hat.
Here is the Councilwoman’s reading Schedule:
10AM Wellington Elementary, 4800 Kaufman Lane
11AM Kennedy Montessori Elementary, 3800 Gibson Lane
12N Carter Traditional Elementary, 3600 Bohn Avenue
1PM Brandeis Elementary, 2817 W. Kentucky
2PM Maupin Elementary 1312 Catalpa
“This weekend, a special animated feature “The Lorax” will be on movie screens,”” says Scott. “It is important to know where the story began.”
