If 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.
