GLS Participates in JumpStarts Read for the Record Event!

Today GLS participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record Day! This is an annual campaign that was started over 10 years ago to highlight the importance of building literacy and language skills for every child. Every year, Jumpstart chooses a book and challenges students across the nation to read the same book on the same day. Jumpstart then calculates the number of students who enjoy this reading opportunity. Since 2006, 20 million people hae participated, This year the book is called Maybe Something Beautiful. GLS celebrated this ay with four enlisted Navy men who came to our school and shared this book and their time with us. Our students enjoyed this opportunity and the guests that shared the book with them!
