ROSD Launches Red Oak READS!, Other Summer Programs
(RED OAK, TX) – School’s out for SUMMER…but now what to do with the kids who are moments away from saying the dreaded words “I’m bored.”
Red Oak ISD’s summer school, camps, and supplemental programs gear up to promote year-round learning for students and provide intervention, acceleration, and fun activities. While most summer school programs are geared toward intervention, this year the district launched Red Oak READS for all students to complete bingo-style boards!
The goal is to encourage students to read throughout the summer, set their own goals, participate in scavenger hunts and qualify for cool prizes!
Register for Red Oak Reads online
Students can register online and upload their bingo board to get started right away! Be sure to download and color in Flat Herkimer (the falcon mascot) to prevail at the picture locations! The district began promoting the program through English and reading classes at all levels in May and posted READ posters throughout the district to promote the program.
“Our students thrive with activities and a fun little competition,” said ROOISD Superintendent Brenda Sanford. “Red Oak READS can be fun for the whole family! We encourage our community to get involved and provide reading places for students in businesses and at home.
Students can mark out bingo squares to read while on vacation, under the stars or near the water. They can also read poetry or a comic book, read to their pet, or take a selfie at the library.
