NEA's Read Across America

MNEA Tour promotes NEA's Read Across America

The Missouri NEA highlight for each year’s Read Across America celebration is the Read Across Tour. The tour is during the week of March 2.

Contact at (573) 644-9606 if you have questions about the Cat Tracks Tour. 

If your school is one of the lucky few to have a stop on the tour, remember to line up a photographer to record your event in pictures. Be sure to post your event ideas and photos on MNEA’s Facebook Page, Submit by March 15 high quality photos (prints from film or digital photos that are one megabyte or larger) and a short article detailing the photos to Debra Beckman, Missouri NEA, 1810 E. Elm St., Jefferson City, MO 65101.
