On Thursday, October 27, millions of students, including our very own NPS early learners, will gather to learn, laugh and read this year’s campaign book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, as part of the world’s largest shared reading experience called Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. Read for the Record is a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago to address the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for Kindergarten.

The Office of Early Childhood has ordered copies of this book for all NPS preschool classrooms and Newark community-based preschool providers.  This year, NPS is encouraging schools to invite parents to serve as volunteer readers. Schools received activities and resources to use on this special day: https://www.jstart.org/campaigns/toolkit.
