World Record at Macdonough School

Children in Mrs. Walsh's first grade class at Macdonough School helped to break a world record by participating in the Jumpstart Read for the Record program!

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, is an international campaign to bring children together with valued grownups in their lives to read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the world.  Today,  youngsters from near and far broke the world record as nearly 1,000,000 readers shared Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day.

On this historic day, one amazing book was read aloud in classrooms, libraries, and homes from Japan to Germany, from Belgium to Brazil, to cities and rural communities across America and right here at Macdonough School!
