Read Across America, partners with OSU

Read Across America, the national initiative by the National Education Association honoring Dr. Seuss' birthday and supporting youth literacy is coming to Central Ohio, in partnership with OSU.

The College of Education and Human Ecology Alumni Society is teaming up with the Arts and Sciences Alumni Society to support the South-Western City and Upper Arlington School Districts by participating in the Read Across America celebration.

The four day celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday will be held at the following:

  • March 1 and 2, 2012
    • Stiles Elementary School (SWC) 4700 Stiles Ave. Columbus, OH 43228
    • Barrington Elementary School (UA) 1780 Barrington Rd Upper Arlington, OH 43221
  • March 5 and 6, 2012
    • Prairie Norton Elementary School (SWC) 117 Norton Rd. Columbus, OH 43228
    • Wickliffe Progressive Community School (UA) 2405 Wickliffe Rd. Upper Arlington, OH 43221

We would very much enjoy having you come and read to a classroom on any day. You can read one book or two depending on your time. Most books take 15 to 20 minutes to read.
