October is a great month!

October is one of my favorite months for many reasons.  The colors, fall food (pumpkin flavored everything, please!), football, harvest (I’m a farm girl!) and the best reason of all, it’s my birthday month!

It’s also a fun month at UWSWMN because we are gearing up for Jumpstart’s Read for the Record.  In fact, this year we are celebrating our 10th year of hosting this annual event that brings awareness to school readiness and literacy.

Due to COVID, we weren’t able to place volunteers for the numerous locations and classrooms throughout our service area but that didn’t stop us from finding a new way to celebrate.  The SMSU Men’s Basketball team has teamed up with us to read the books that have been read for this annual reading celebration over the past decade.   Participating locations/classrooms will receive a copy of the book, activity ideas and the opportunity to win various prize packages from UWSWMN and the Mustang Men’s Basketball team.

Join us in celebrating all month long—the videos will be posted on our Facebook page, on our website under the Read for the Record tab or on our You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLOR0l9wpPqZGHcz9UDvV0w?view_as=subscriber.

Happy Reading & Go Mustangs!
