Steenrod Celebrates American Education Week

American Education Week Events are Being Held in Ohio County Schools

American Education Week is underway throughout Ohio County Schools, and Steenrod Elementary School has again taken its own approach to the annual celebration.

The school’s theme is “Under the Sea,” and the staff, students and PTA have decorated ocean scenes in all of Steenrod’s halls. The school’s American Education Week book fair is in line with the aquatic motif with the title “Bookaneer Book Fair: Where Books are the Treasure!”

Steenrod Principal Michelle Dietrich said, as part of American Education Week, the school will hold its STEAM Family Fun Night at 6 p.m. Thursday. She thanked the school’s PTA for its involvement in all of the events.

“We couldn’t do all of this without our parents,” Dietrich said. “They did an amazing job at decorating the school, they volunteer at the book fair, and they will celebrate with us Thursday during Family Fun Night. They truly do all that they can for Steenrod and our students.”

American Education Week events are taking place this week in each Ohio County public school. The events includes book fairs, guest readers and family events.
