On Thursday, October 22, the Mayor from Rockwall, Jim Pruitt, visited Jones Elementary for the Read for the Record® program.
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a global campaign which generates public support for high-quality learning by organizing children and adults to take part in the world’s largest shared reading experience. This year, Jumpstart is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the program.
Mr. Pruitt read the book Not Norman: A Goldfish Story written by Kelly Bennett & illustrated by Noah Z. Jones to the first grade students. He also helped the students paint a fish like Norman for a fun activity. Also, grades K, 2nd and 3rd participated by reading the book in class throughout the day!
