On Thursday, Jumpstart‘s Read for the Record will be a major part of Atlanta Public Schools’ day. There’s the major event planned at the Hyatt Regency (265 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta GA, 30303), in which guests will read from Eric Carle’s classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Guests readers include David Chandley, meteorologist from WSB-TB; Mike Beatty, commissioner for Georgia Department of Community Affairs; Kwanza Hall, Atlanta City Council member; and Brian Rhodes, Pearson Curriculum Manager. There will be 120 schoolchildren in attendance including those from APS’ own Finch and Venetian Hills elementary schools. The event will run from 10 a.m. to noon.
Also, don’t forget a smaller event with the same book will be held at Garden Hills Elementary. This event will start at 8:30 a.m., with the book being ready by teachers in both English and Spanish to celebrate the school’s diverse student population.
