Read For tHE rECORD

Read for the Record


On Thursday, October 25, 2018, SLHDA  classroom children, staff, and volunteers participated in “Read for the Record”.  Read for the Record brings together millions of people each year in classrooms, libraries, community centers, and homes across the US. This annual campaign highlights the importance of building early literacy and language skills for every child, so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.   We reached out to area principals and volunteers inviting them to come into our classrooms to be guest readers for this event!


This year’s book, Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell, illustrated by Rafael López celebrates the magic that happens when a community comes together to create something special and bring about change.  After hearing the story, our children created some beautiful murals and projects to help brighten up our world!!
