Minot State's SNDU chapter hosts Dr. Seuss literacy event in MPS district

Minot State University’s Students of North Dakota United chapter and North Dakota United-Retired will host a literacy event throughout the Minot Public School District Friday (Feb. 27). The event commemorates Dr. Seuss’ upcoming birthday and Read Across America.

“This event is possible thanks to the generosity of NDU-Retired Teachers, which donated money for SNDU to order and give a book to every Minot Public student, grades kindergarten through third,” said Britton Bissette, SNDU public relations officer. “SNDU is honored to be organizing such a large event to promote literacy and the love of reading to community children.”

Minot State SNDU and NDU-Retired members will visit classrooms throughout the district Friday, and they will read a book to each class. In the forthcoming weeks, they will return to the schools and give a new book to each student to take home (The arrival of the books was delayed by inclement weather on the east coast).

SNDU is a student club for MSU’s education majors. It strives to provide opportunities for education majors to be involved in and lend services to the education community in Minot. Standing officers, in addition to Bissette, include Andrea Ray, president; Malia Salyards, vice president; Lindsay Kightlinger, secretary; Camilla Keller, treasurer; and Katrina Pouteaux, student government representative. Dan Conn, assistant professor of teacher education, is the faculty sponsor.

For questions, contact Bissette at (701)340-9286, Conn at (970)520-9084 or Ray at (972)841-5391.
