Representative Bumstead Delivers Supplies to Big Jackson Students
Big Jackson students have new backpacks and many school supplies thanks to the generosity of Representative Bumstead who selected them as the recipients for AT&T’s annual “adopt-a-school” distribution.
The backpacks will become “Take Home Backpacks” filled with engaging texts and nightly reading challenges for students and their families. The “Take Home Backpacks” will help each Big Jackson student become a better reader. Principal Becky Jackson said, “Learning to read takes a lot of practice, and students are expected to read to someone at home at least 15 minutes each day.”
...Big Jackson Elementary is a Lab School site with the regional Reading Now Network, a collective effort of superintendents, school boards and school districts throughout West Michigan to improve early literacy and, ultimately, student achievement across all grade levels.
