The Cherokee County School District is joining in the celebration of Read for the Record Day, a national event to raise awareness of the importance of early childhood education and literacy, on Thursday, Oct. 27.

Each year, Jumpstart (http://www.jstart.org/) selects one children’s book it encourages classes and families nationwide to read together in an effort to break the world record for the most people reading the same book on the same day.  This year’s book, “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich” by Julia Sarcone-Roach, is a classic tale of a bear’s epic journey and the mystery surrounding one delicious sandwich.

The School District has continued the tradition of preparing a “Reading Rainbow”-style video for teachers to considering using in their classrooms if they don’t have special events such as guest readers planned.  This year’s CCSD video features Assistant Superintendent for Educational Programs, Student Support, Accountability & Professional Development Susan McCarthy reading “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich” at Holly Springs Elementary School STEM Academy to the classes of Beth Cornelison and Denise Cloer.

The video project was made possible through the work of CCSD Facilitator for Enterprise Field Services Chris Saxon, Holly Springs ES STEM Academy Media Specialist Stephanie Gauthia and Penny Dempsey of CCSD’s Division of Public Information.
