Coker is invaded by dr. Seuss' "things"

Rumor had it that Coker Elementary School was to be invaded by "Things" on Friday, Mar. 1, and they were correct. In celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday, Coker faculty, staff and students sported "Thing" hair.

Inspired by Dr. Seuss, Coker students wanted to share the joy of reading with other children in our city. Students donated over 440 children's books. These books were presented to the San Antonio Children's Shelter during morning announcements.
