Ponca City Public Schools-
Wednesday, March 2, has been declared as Read Across America Day in Ponca City Public Schools. Elementary schools have scheduled activities throughout the week.
The day was established by the National Education Association in 1998 to help get kids excited about reading. The day occurs each year on the birthday of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss, so a perfect way to celebrate is to don a Seussian hat and read one of his famous tales.
On National Read Across America Day, students, teachers, parents and community members around the nation come together to read books and celebrate the joy of reading.
The Ponca City Board of Education stands firmly committed to promoting reading as the catalyst for our student’s future academic success, their preparation for America’s jobs of the future, and their ability to compete in a global economy. Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school.
