Read Across America began back in 1998 when the National Education Association was looking for a way to motivate students to read, and Read Across America was born. It was decided to be honored each year on Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2. Now each year, Neligh-Oakdale Title I and the Neligh-Oakdale Education Association team together to host the annual event.
This year, on Tuesday March 1, Neligh-Oakdale will be hosting their annual Read Across America Night in honor of Dr. Seuss. The event will be held at the high school gym and is set to start at 5:30.
Activities will be available for students, along with one free book for every child. Along with activities, the FBLA will also be handing out cupcakes. Beginning at 5:50, grades 3-6 will begin doing readers theaters for all to enjoy.
This year we have planned something new for students and will be doing a Dr. Seuss "spirit week" with dress up days for the week of February 29- March 4.
