Read Across America-Springdale Elementary, Tulsa

On Tuesday the NEA Cat-a-Van traveled to Tulsa's Springdale Elementary School where we were greeted and introduced by Principal Bradley Eddy.

The program included Mike and Paula reading as well as visits by Thing 1 and Thing 2 then followed by the Cat-in-the hat.

It was another exciting day for the kids and they really enjoyed the opportunity to sit down and read with adults. After leading them in the pledge, I encouraged them to continue to read for pleasure and to share the joy of reading with others.

Everyone cheered the presentation of $1,000, from the NEA,to buy more books for the Springdale library.

One of the choices at lunch was green eggs and ham. As you can tell, the kids loved every bite.

Another fantastic day in a great public school.
