Dr. Seuss Week makes reading whimsical

Burnet Police Chief Paul Nelson reads “The Butter Battle Book” to Ms. Clark and Lastly's Kindergarten classes at Shady Grove Elementary on Fri., March 9. Nelson was one of many community members who volunteered to celebrate Dr. Seuss Week at Shady Grove Elementary from March 5 to March 9. “The Butter Battle Book” teaches readers that though some people are different from others, there is no reason everyone can't get along.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!”

Dr. Seuss' words of wisdom can be recognized from a mile away, no matter one's age or temperament. He is one of the most celebrated children's authors of all time, and BCISD Parent-Volunteer Coordinator Darlene Denton has made it a goal to spread his magic and ideals to children throughout BCISD.

Denton has gone above and beyond to teach students about Dr. Seuss and the values he continues to instill in children's minds through his colorful, whimsical stories.

In 2001, Denton took members of the BHS girls basketball team to the elementary school to read their favorite Dr. Seuss stories to the children.


Bulldog Bros to build youth character



Taking a page from the Diva Dawgs in Burnet County, Darlene Denton was excited to announce a new program that helps build character in boys’ 3rd-6th grade called the Bulldog Bros.

Denton, who runs the Diva Dawgs program reached out via social media in September, asking for anyone interested in supporting the program to attend a Sept. 18 meeting or call or email her directly.

 “The "want to" was there, the need was there, and because of the success of our Diva Dawgs program, starting the guys group has been well received, because we have men stepping up to lead these young men,” said Denton.

The Bulldog Bros is geared toward teaching and participating in activities that help young boys become young men and one of the leaders of the group is Jerry White.
