Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is excited to participate in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® and join millions of people across the nation by reading the book “Quackers” by author Liz Wong. The national event takes place on Thursday, October 19, 2017; however, this year BCPS is expanding activities and guest readings to take place between October 17 – 20, 2017.
In addition, through a partnership between BCPS, the Children’s Services Council, and multiple Broward County early childhood stakeholders, a free copy of “Quackers” will be provided to each pre-kindergarten and kindergarten child in Broward County. That’s 40,000 books for 40,000 children! Guest readers include School Board members, BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie, District staff and local elected officials, as well as representatives from the Broward County judicial system, local organizations, hospitals, libraries and more.
