On Thursday October 7, students at Park View Elementary helped set a world record in reading. Students participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record program by being just a few of over 2 million students to read Llama Llama, Red Pajama at school that day. The students were lucky enough to have one of the school board members, Christine Riley, come and read the story to them. The kids dressed in red to celebrate (some even wore red pajamas), and they loved reading with Mrs. Riley.

Park View’s principal, Mrs. Reynolds, said, “It was a wonderful treat to have Mrs. Riley as a guest reader at our school. She obviously loves children and reading. I know the first-grade children loved her infectious positivity, and who wouldn't enjoy a good Llama Llama book.”

It was a memorable day. The students and teachers at Park View were grateful to Mrs. Riley for helping inspire children to read.
