Read Across America / Dr. Seuss Day

Red Oak Elementary students and staff are invited to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day and Read Across America on March 2. Students and staff may dress up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character, wear red, white and blue for Read Across America or a spirit shirt and jeans. We can't wait to celebrate reading as a campus.

March 2 is our Open House and the beginning of our Spring Book Fair. We hope to see you at Open House. It's a great opportunity to get an update on the excitement of the year. We have lots of success to celebrate.


We will also begin field trips for grades in the coming weeks. We love to have parent chaperones. If you are available to attend, please sign up on the Volunteer Program.
