Jumpstart Seattle at the University of Washington
Jumpstart at the University of Washington participated in Read for the Record!
Every year, Jumpstart sets a new world record by mobilizing adults and children across the country to read the same book on the same day. In Seattle, Jumpstart Team Leaders celebrated this annual event by reading to nearly 25 children at a Jumpstart Storytime at the Douglas-Truth Library. The celebration will continue this week as Jumpstart members and community volunteers will read and deliver books and take-home literacy kits to 20 Headstart classrooms in Seattle, reaching over 330 children.
Read for the Record is our kick-off event for the 2012 - 2013 academic year and is just one of many ways in which we are working towards the day that all children in Seattle enter school prepared to succeed.
