CORA Services is proud of the thousands of students we serve each year and appreciates the thousands of parents, teachers and school leaders that support their success, in and out of the classroom. Last March CORA hosted a fun-filled day of activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and transformed the conference center into Seussville. Filled with balloons, games, activities and even friendly Seuss characters, families were quite impressed as they walked through CORA’s doors on that snowy day and entered our literacy wonderland designed for children ages 0-7.
To exhibit the creative work of CORA’s students, as well as the positive and transformative impact of CORA’s staff in local schools, CORA hosted an Elementary School Art Contest and a Middle School Writing Contest. On March 2, 2019, CORA will host another family-friendly Seussville extravaganza at 8540 Verree Road, Philadelphia, PA 19111 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Seussville at CORA will be colorful, inviting and informative for parents with young children and even educators interested in early childhood education.
Children in grades 1-8, are encouraged to participate in the art or writing contest. Younger children are asked to submit artwork depicting a Dr. Seuss scene, and middle school students are asked to compose a 25 line poem in the rhyming style of Dr. Seuss.
Contest entries are due by Monday, February 11th and will be reviewed by a CORA committee. Finalists will be contacted the week of Feb. 25th and winners will be announced at CORA’s Seussville event om Saturday, March 2, 2019, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. The winner of the art contest will receive a $50 award and the winner of the writing contest will receive a $100 award. This community event was designed to engage local families and welcome them inside our facility for something different than our usual services. The event is aimed at promoting awareness and enthusiasm around the importance of early literacy. Seussville at CORA will include interactive readings, literacy activities, arts and crafts, games and prizes, and photos with Dr. Seuss characters.
