St. Mary's Catholic School pre-k class participated in the Jumpstart Read for the Record campaign, a program to promote early childhood education.

This year's selection was "Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad," by David Soman and Jacky Davis.

Jumpstart supporters all read the same book on the same day in support of early childhood education.
