Read  Across America Week
Read Across America Week

Thursday, April 11, 2019

In honor of Read Across  America week, the students at Jenkins Elementary released balloons with tags that had their names, their favorite book, and a small note requesting a return letter from whomever finds the balloon.  So far, we have received two replies!  The first letter came back to a pre-school student and their balloon traveled all the way to Danville, VA; Danville is over 250-miles away!  The second response came from a balloon released by one of our fourth graders and her balloon traveled over to Russell County, VA.  We are very excited to see where else our balloons show up!  So, be on the look out for a red string with a tag attached and send us a response about your favorite book!
