Read Across America-Sky Ranch Elementary, Moore

The NEA Cat-a-Van started its journey through Oklahoma with a visit to Sky Ranch Elementary School in Moore. Principal Janice West welcomed the guests that included NEA Executive Committee members Mike Bilirakis and Paula Monroe, Moore ACT President Jill Dudley, and the big yellow dog aka. Bruce Treadaway.

The kids were all decked out in their cat hats as they enjoyed the reading done by Paula and Mike. After they finished reading, I led the in the reading oath and while the kids promised to read, they also promised to read with someone so that they could share the joy of reading with others.

The NEA presented every child with a book and then gave $1000 to Sky Ranch to buy books for their library.

As you can see by the pictures we had a great time and Oklahoman reporter Wendy Kelinman's story made the front page of the Oklahoman.
