Read Across America
Read Across America is an annual reading program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2nd, the birthday of beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss. This year, Ida Freeman will hold a third annual school-wide celebration with a day of Seuss-tastic activities. One of the most important activities happening that day will be guest readers in every classroom!
We need YOUR help to make this celebration Seuss-cessful!
We are looking for volunteers to come to school on Thursday, March 2nd as guest readers. Come by the library and select some Dr. Seuss books to share with a class. If you can volunteer 30 minutes of time, then you can share the importance—and fun—of reading with our students! Contact the library or click the link below to sign up. Please sign up by Friday, Feb. 24th!
Students will also be able to visit the Seuss-tastic Photo Booth on March 2nd, where they can try on Seuss-y props and snap a pic! Photos will be printed in 5 x 7 size with a custom Dr. Seuss border for $5. Photo order forms & payment are due on March 2nd. Photos will be delivered before Spring Break.
Bushels for Books Program
Ida Freeman was selected to be a part of the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation & the Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers’ Bushel for Books program! Bushel for Books program seeks to provide accurate and current agriculture books in Oklahoma schools. Local farmers and co-ops have donated part of their wheat crops to help fund the donations in hopes that it will inspire future farmers.
Thank you for the books! It will be an excellent addition to our library for both teachers and students to learn more about agriculture!
