Once again central OEA/NEA will be participating in Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Reach Out and Read Campaign. Many of you have participated in the past and I welcome you to participate again this year. For those of you who have never participated, I encourage you to start this year. With a little bit of planning, some advertising, and a great deal of enthusiasm, your district can hold a very successful book drive. It is now easier than ever to do. If your district (or even just one of your schools) would like to participate, please designate a chairperson and have them register at http://goo.gl/forms/jMm07mbStW.
Once you have registered, you may choose your dates (anytime between now and the end of March), plan, and start to collect new and gently used books for children ages birth-middle school. Monetary donations may also be collected. Once the books are collected you will sort, box, and schedule your pick up date through Nationwide Children’s Hospital. That is it! We will even have literature for you to hand out and collection boxes if you need them.
If you are interested and would like to send one district representative to Central OEA/NEA’s Community Outreach meeting on Thursday, January 15 at 6:00 PM, please do so. We will have Rekha Voruganti from Nationwide Children’s Hospital/ROR there to present and answer any questions that you might have. We will be brainstorming/sharing ideas for a successful book drive. We will also be honoring our Anti-Bullying PSA contest winners during the first fifteen minutes of the meeting.
To register for the meeting please log in (or create a log in) and then register for the Community Outreach meeting (January 15 @ 6:00 PM). If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. Thanks in advance for all of your help.
Are you tired of SLOs? Testing? 3rd grade reading guarantee? Being told year after year to "just do more with less" and that you have it too good? Then you can make a difference with minimal effort. Being informed is half the battle.
