Group of RCPS educators holding books donated by Star City ReadsReading at grade level is a must for students to be successful.  Star City Reads is a campaign that ensures that Roanoke children are proficient in reading by 3rd grade.  Star City Reads received 40,000 children's book from the Books on Wheels initiative. 

Star City Reads shared 5,400 new books with Roanoke City Public Schools.  Each school in the district received more than 200 books for its students. Instructional and reading coaches traveled to a large warehouse and picked out the best books for their students.

The schools will now work to distribute the books to students who need them the most.  We greatly appreciate Star City Reads continued support of our students.
