Oden PTO Promotes Reading

The National Education Association’s Read Across America is a reading motivation and awareness program held annually across the nation. The program’s aim is for every child in every community to celebrate reading during this week-long event and throughout the year.

On March 3rd, the Ouachita River School District Oden campus had a special guest to cap off Read Across America Week. Clifford the Big Red Dog made a surprise appearance for a special “meet & greet” in partnership with Oden Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) volunteers by reading to Oden Preschool and Ode Maddox Elementary School students. Students were given the opportunity to meet Clifford and pose for photos.

Thank you Oden PTO for encouraging reading!
