Parry Town Primary School in Ocho Rios, St. Ann, Jamaica recently held a reading competition for its students.
Part of our Book in a Bag program requests the school conduct a ‘Reading Comprehension’ Competition with books donated by First Book/Great Shape! Inc. Mama G says, “Parry Town happens to be the first school to send us pictures of the competition and we’re delighted to see the children of Jamaica having fun reading!”
“Book in a Bag helps address the importance of literacy, no matter what the age or grade,” says Kay Knack Book in the Bag leader. “The competition can help motivate the students and it teaches good library skills.”
SuperKids Co-Leader, Gretchen Lee says, “We are so thankful for our continued partnership with First Book and all the children who now have books in their hands.”
