Lt. Governor Joe Garcia lead a week-long tour across the state, visiting small and large communities alike, to build excitement for reading as part of Colorado Literacy Week. The tour made a stop at Irish Elementary School in Fort Collins to celebrate Book Trust and its impact on students, teachers, and families.
During the visit, Lt. Governor Garcia read How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? to first grade students before celebrating reading by distributing students’ first month of Book Trust books of the school year.
Lindsey Walton, Principal of Irish Elementary shared, “Book Trust is a valuable resource for our students and their families. Thanks to Book Trust, when we send books home with students, we are building a love of reading and learning beyond the classroom. We are excited that Lt. Governor Garcia witnessed our students’ excitement firsthand and read to our students.”
