Memphis City Schools Helps Jumpstart Read for the Record
Memphis City Schools' participation in Jumpstart's 2012 Read for the Record kick-off campaign was recorded at 23,596 students. On October 4, 2012, these students, along with participants from across the county, came together to read the children's book Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, by David Soman and Jacky Davis. Read for the Record celebrates literacy and supports Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. This year's campaign was a record-breaking kick-off to Jumpstart's year-long early education programs.
Thanks to Memphis City Schools students and to the fine work of MCS Library Coordinator Margaret Montgomery and her staff, Jumpstart set a new world reading record!
