Miss Rhode Island USA 2018 reads to Orlo Ave Kindergarten Students


Miss Rhode Island USA 2018 Daescia Demoranville joined kindergarten students at Orlo Avenue on October 19, 2017 to read the book Quackers, a book about acceptance and kindness! The school participated in Read for the Record, a national event where over 2 million readers read the same book around the nation.

Statement from Read for the Record:

"Join the millions of children and adults who’ll be participating in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® this year! Jumpstart is celebrating the 12th anniversary of its annual campaign, which gathers over 2 million people together around the world to read the same book on the same day. Read for the Record brings much needed attention to inequities in early childhood education, inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education, and puts books in the hands of children across the country."
