BRISTOL — Bristol Elementary School’s annual I Love to Read and Write Week in February had a wonderful new activity this year: 21 members of the wider Bristol community came into classrooms to read to the children, as part of the Passport to Stories Around the World.
“Mrs. MacDonald’s 3/4 class was a real hoot. We read a story, rolled in some geography, played a bit with languages, and the kids were super engaged. Several of them were counting up the countries I’d visited. I lost track after 22,” said reader Jim Jarvis.
