To The Leader


Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett kicked off Texas Reads One Book on April 16, by reading the first chapter of The Mouse and the Motorcycle, by Beverly Cleary. Students of Dawn Garrett, Pam Weir and Lori Clark at Mauriceville Elementary were able to join other students across the State through video-feed as Coach Garrett explained to them the importance of reading, and then read to them. The students were encouraged to read the rest of the book or ask their parents to read it to them at home, reading a chapter each night.

According to the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) website, “TASA and the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) is pleased to partner in this effort to create a culture of reading in schools and communities throughout Texas.”
