Eagle Hill goes for reading record

On Oct. 4, the Lower School students at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich joined more than two million other children in classes across the United States, as part of the Read for the Record campaign. The students all read Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Soman and Jacky Davis. Upper School students were encouraged to assist by reading the book out loud to the younger students or helping them with a craft activity.


Read for the Record is a national campaign generated by Jumpstart in partnership with the Pearson Foundation. They set aside one day of the year to celebrate literacy and support its efforts to promote early childhood education. On Oct. 4, people across the country were encouraged to read the Ladybug book. In 2011, according to Jumpstart, 2.2 million participated.

At Eagle Hill, close to 100 students enjoyed the enchanting story about how difficult it can be to say “sorry.”
