Cedar Ridge Elementary joined millions of children and adults by participating in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record on Thursday.
This year’s event at Cedar Ridge was organized by Instructional Coach Cindy Kallsnick and Dyslexia Therapist Paula Osborne.
Jumpstart celebrated the 15th anniversary of its campaign, which gathered millions of people together around the world to read the same book on the same day in an effort to promote literacy.
The featured book for this year was “Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away” by Meg Medina with illustrations by Sonia Sanchez.
