What do you want to be when you grow up?
Do you remember when you dressed up for specific reasons in elementary school?
Why did you dress as you did?
Maybe you dressed up as a doctor, professional athlete or businessman or woman.
Possibly your outfit resembled what your parents did for a living.
Some Dudley Elementary students dressed up like what they wanted to be when they grew up costumes last Wednesday.
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday March 2, students came to school in different outfits each day.
On March 3 students participated in “silly sock” day, March 4 was “dress like your favorite Dr. Seuss character” day, Thursday was “backwards and inside-out day” and the week wrapped up with pajama and hat day on Friday.
Last Wednesday, first-grader McKinzie Aden dressed up in a cardigan and glasses because she wants to be a high-school teacher.

First grade tough guys were Conagher Schultz and Zander Hruza also sported costumes.
