The Cat in the Hat recently paid a visit to our DuPage Head Start students thanks to the volunteers of Pi Beta Phi. As part of their “Day of Service in honor of Dr. Seuss,” sorority volunteers read, enjoyed crafts and donated books for each student to bring home!
“Please pass on our thanks to the wonderful Head Start classroom teachers we met at the Cat in the Hat event. Their warm welcome was so appreciated and felt instantly upon entering the room. The Head Start students in each of the classrooms were respectful and attentive to us. The Head Start teachers have created a safe and fun learning environment. It was a privilege to have been a part of it!” said Pi Beta Phi sorority volunteers.
Thanks for your kindness and volunteerism Pi Beta Phi!! We enjoyed having you at DuPage Head Start!
DuPage Head Start celebrated Dr Seuss’ birthday earlier this month with members of the alumnae chapter of Pi Beta Phi. This interactive literacy event included story time with the children, playing games and decorating a book plate. Pi Beta Phi gave each child a Dr. Seuss book where they inserted their newly decorated book plates. All 68 Head Start children were given books! One child asked when he should return the book. The sorority members answered, “That’s your book to take home and keep!” The child asked, “Forever and ever?” The Pi Beta Phi members were visibly touched as they answered, “Yes, you can keep the book forever and ever.”
