Each year, on March 2, schools across the nation come together to celebrate the birthday and legacy of Theodore Geisel, more affectionately know as Dr. Seuss.

It is an event that no one in the company wants to miss!
Breast Cancer is a disease that affects many of us both directly and indirectly. Each October, Teacher Created Materials organizes creative fundraisers and commits to matching all employee donations to support breast cancer research.
