How Does My School, Library, or Large Group Participate?
Schools, libraries, museums, and other organizations help bring Jumpstart’s Read for the Record alive in communities around the world. From large group readings in school auditoriums to story hours and community-wide reading festivals, Read for the Record is truly an opportunity to rally your school, library, or larger community around the importance of high-quality early learning experiences. The best part about Read for the Record is that everyone is invited to join in on the fun! No matter where you live or how old you are, all you need is a copy of the official campaign book or access to a computer with internet. We are currently in the process of selecting the 2018 book. Stay tuned for updates in Spring 2018!
We invited special guests throughout the community to come in and read with our scholars. We read our story and completed a school wide mural “I Like Me” project. Our students loved the special guests and felt special that others took time out of their day to read with them. All of our guests had a blast and want to come back to work with our scholars. — Teacher from Memphis, TN
This is my 11th year participating in the Read for the Record. The kids enjoyed Quackers this year and it fit right in with a lesson they have recently learned about how we may look and sound different but we are all people and as long as we are true to ourselves, others will love us as we are. — Corporate Volunteer
