“Read With Us” program encourages storytime at home

"Read with Us" graphicIf you haven’t discovered our nightly “Read with Us” videos yet, please be sure to check our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/jacksonviaelementary!  Each evening at 7:30 p.m., our staff takes turns reading different books to our students.

Inspired by a Texas principal who reads bedtime stories to her students on the internet, our Jackson-Via staff wanted to create a similar school-wide effort to get students and families excited about reading.

Principal Justin Malone kicked off the “Read with Us” series by reading the book, “All Are Welcome” by Alexandra Penfold, a heartwarming picture book that celebrates diversity. Families can access the videos through Facebook at a time that fits their schedule best.
