2016 Testimonials

Thank you for sending The Cat to our school…he participated in a first grade Seussical Show and visited a few classrooms. It was a GREAT day!

-- Melia Hoffman, Clara B. Worth School, Bayville

We at Henry Harris just wanted to thank the team for visiting our school and making The Cat in the Hat visit such a wonderful experience for our students! They were very excited and happy they had visited. Not only were the children so happy, the team that came this time was very helpful and so nice. We thank you for the book as well. We got to read it to the children today, and they loved it of course.

We at Livingston Park school wanted to take a moment to say thank you for sending us the Cat in the Hat. It was great fun!

On behalf of my staff and students, I want to thank you for having the Cat in the Hat visit our school. I know that the students had a great time during his visit with us, and I am sure that even those big students who work with children also had fun. In addition, I want to thank NJEA for leaving us with the most recent publication of Dr. Seuss’s What Pet Should I Get? It will be a welcome addition to our classroom shared libraries. Again, thanks for allowing us to have the opportunity to meet and greet the Cat in the Hat.

As the 2016 celebration of Read Across America comes to an end, I want to thank you for all the many kindnesses you have extended to me and the Wanaque School District throughout the years. It was been a real pleasure to me to work with NJEA to celebrate the power of reading and the importance of working together as a union to bring the very best experiences to our students that we can. Thank you!

-- Mary Horst, Wanaque School District

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the NJEA for the opportunity to have The Cat in the Hat visit our school. The students were absolutely thrilled, even to the point where one student said to me that "this was the best day ever in school." Thank you again for all of your time and effort in coordinating this very valuable event for our students.

Today we had the MOST meow-vah-lis visit from Cat-In-The-Hat! On behalf of the entire Parker School community I would like to express my sincere thanks for choosing Parker School this year and sending such an experienced and enthusiastic team! Their visit was the ultimate kick-off for our “Cat-In-The-Hat/Read Across America” week, and our celebration would not have been the same without them! I could not have dreamed of a more purrfect way to spend the afternoon! It was such a memorable day!

--Jeanette D. Pine, Parker Elementary School, Middlesex Boro
