Irving ISD Reads! 10@10
For the sixth year, Irving ISD presented 10@10, a time when all students, staff and community volunteers read for 10 minutes at 10 a.m. The 10@10 initiative, held
May 26, is part of the Irving Reads program, which has provided more than 700,000 free books to students from prekindergarten to eighth grade to encourage a love of learning and reading during the summer. All schools participated in 10@10, but a special presentation was held at Brown Elementary School. Jose L. Parra, Ed.D., Irving ISD Superintendent of Schools, and Brown Elementary School Principal Jason Barnett took turns reading Dr. Seuss’s Oh, The Place You’ll Go! to a group of first graders. In addition, a representative of the Irving Public Library shared information about the library’s summer reading program and incentives. The event concluded with a surprise visit from Clifford the Big Red Dog. Photos from 10@10 across the district can be found in the district’s Photo Gallery.
