Read Across America
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss
NEA’s Cat-a-Van Tour Reading Tour Visits South Carolina!
Grab your hats; the National Education Association’s Cat-a-Van Reading Tour is making a stop in Columbia on Monday, March 10, 2014!
The tour is made possible through a unique partnership between NEA and Renaissance Dental, who have teamed up to deliver a very important message to students: 2 x 2 + 20 = good oral health and literacy habits.
To keep students reading and brushing at home, books, toothbrushes, posters, and other goodies will be distributed across the reading route. NEA and Renaissance Dental also will be distributing funds to public schools visited by the Cat-a-Van Reading Tour to help keep their libraries stocked with books and other reading inspiration.
The 2014 Cat-a-Van tour will travel 4,000 miles across the United States, bringing with it a celebration of reading to students at 30 schools. The tour will begin Monday, February 24, in Texas and conclude Friday, March 14, in Mississippi, along the way making stops in 18 cities across nine states.
