Students at RES will once again be participating in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign. This year’s book is Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Somar and Jacky Davis. Students across the school will be taking a moment at some point in the day to read this book on October 4th.
YOU can pledge to read this book at home, too! Just click on the following link and complete the required information. Then on October 4th, Jumpstart will email you and ask you to write in the exact number of children that you read Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad to on that day. They will add that number to their total – and hopefully there will be a new world record!
