Berkley Reads for the Record
Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Lunenburg County Public Schools, along with the Virginia Department of Education, celebrated "Read for the Record," on October 21, 2014. "Read for the Record" is a national campaign encouraging children and adults across the United States to read the same book on the same day. "Bunny Cakes", by Rosemary Wells, was the book selected this year.
Charles Berkley, Superintendent of Lunenburg County Public Schools, got in to character and read "Bunny Cakes," to first graders at Kenbridge Elementary School. There is a greater chance that students will be motivated to read if a role model reads to them. Being able to read opens the door for students to excel in all areas of education.
