North Trail Elementary School principal Dr. Steven Geis estimated that about 500 students, with their parents and siblings, turned out for Tuesday's Family Literacy Night event. The timing was coordinated to celebrate the birthday of children's book author, Dr. Seuss, so all of the books read during the read-along portion of the event were written by Dr. Seuss.
