In case you are wondering…all Day Nursery centers are open this morning. Stay warm and please drive carefully!
Today 18 children in the three-year-old and Pre-K classrooms at the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center on Central Avenue did their part to help create a new world record for the most people reading the same book on the same day when they participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. Miss Sara and Miss Caroline read lots of books in their classroom every day so they were excited about participating in this national record. Jumpstart, the sponsor of the event is working to raise awareness about the important role that reading has in shaping a child’s life as well as showcasing their effort to make sure every child has a chance to succeed in classrooms every day. Presented in partnership with Pearson Education, this fifth-annual celebration of reading and learning encourages everyone – children and adults – to come together to set a new world record for the number of people reading the same classic children’s book on the same day. Last year, more than 2.1 million people took part in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Campaign. If you would like to participate today, you can click here to read the official book of Jumpstart’s 2010 Read for the Record Campaign—Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day—right now, online for free. When you’re done, you can quickly and immediately certify your participation. As soon as totals are in, Jumpstart will even send you a note confirming the day’s record-breaking total! Thanks to Day Nursery Center Director Shannon Garrity for sharing these pictures taken at her center this morning.

Today is Census Day. That’s no joke. Make Indy Count today by returning your form.
When you fill out the census form, you’re making a statement about what resources our community needs going forward.
Accurate data reflecting changes in your community are crucial in apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and deciding how more than $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools.
That’s more than $4 trillion over a 10-year period for things like new roads and schools, and services like job training centers.
As of 2006, the census data told us that 57 percent of mothers work outside of the home. Statistics like this help community leaders plan for services needed in our city.
If you need more reasons why, check out the 2010 Census website full of good information.
All Day Nursery centers are open this morning. Drive safely!
