The Superintendent’s Summer Reading initiative with story time read-aloud hour started this week with a stop to the Boys & Girls Club and the Mount Vernon Library. The guest readers were Mount Vernon City councilman Derrick Thompson, and from the Neighborhood Health Center, Community Health Worker Enjoli Pennamom. The kids were engaged and eager to answer questions about the books that were read. Everyone had a chance to share what they learned. We want to continue to encourage our students to use their superpower of reading, which helps them to foster a lifetime of learning.
