CCSD59 Connects Through Love of Reading with #D59Reads
There are few reasons not to curl up with a good book. The opportunity to do so came often last week as students and families experienced a non-traditional spring break.
In the midst of the current closure of all schools at Community Consolidated School District 59, staff have prioritized staying connected with students and families. It can be a challenge, but it has allowed teachers and students to get creative. That is why the #D59Reads hashtag encouraged families to share what, where, and how our students dove into stories throughout the week.
Parents and staff responded with books and settings of all kinds.
“It has been so uplifting to see staff, students, and families connect over books during this unique spring break,” said Alyssa Kocher, Literacy Facilitator at CCSD59. “I hope this campaign motivated everyone to take a moment to relax and enjoy a good book…or two!”
We encourage all students to continue reading and sharing what new stories they may find. For more information on how CCSD59 is supporting students and families during the closure, click here.
