Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
CCS Presentation Systems, the largest integrator of audio and visual equipment in the Southwest, today announced its collaborative efforts with Jumpstart and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to highlight "Read for the Record" on October 8, 2009. Teachers, parents and children throughout the state are encouraged to visit http://www.ccspresentationsystems.com/readfortherecord, powered by Mediasite, to watch Governor Brewer read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
Jumpstart began Read for the Record in 2006 to bring preschool children together with valued grownups in their lives to read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the world. This year, Jumpstart aims to set a new world record for the greatest number of people reading the same book on the same day. The day starts on NBC's "TODAY" show, with Jumpstart's official spokespeople Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira, and continues all day long at thousands of reading events in schools, libraries and community centers across the country. Reading aloud with preschool children lays the groundwork for strong literacy skills and future success in school and in life.
CCS hopes to enable children, teachers and parents throughout Arizona to join the hundreds of thousands worldwide reading together on October 8th by visiting http://www.ccspresentationsystems.com/readfortherecord to enjoy the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, as told by Governor Brewer. Make a pledge to read with us by visiting the official event site and be counted toward the world record at http://www.readfortherecord.org/pledge.
"We have served Arizona schools and educators for nearly 20 years and are true believers in helping to advance students through technology in the classroom," said Founder and CEO of CCS Presentation Systems, John Godbout. "Combining efforts with Governor Brewer to make Read for the Record a widespread Arizona event made perfect sense and broadens our commitment to supporting Arizona's educators."
