Dr. Ian Buchanan, assistant superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, read to JGEC students for the 13th anniversary of Jumpstart Read for the Record on Oct. 25, 2018. The reading was followed by an engaging discussion with the students of Pride 15.
This year’s book, "Maybe Something Beautiful," was written by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López.
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record brings together millions of people each year in classrooms, libraries, community centers, and homes across the US. This annual campaign was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child, so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.
