School Takeover

BP School Reading Takeover is a wonderful event dedicated to serving the youth and adults of our communities. The focus for this event is to celebrate the importance of reading while building healthy youth/adult relationships. School Takeover provides an open & organic fellowship for continuous community unification. Brandon Publishing and our partners, understand the importance of literacy focused projects. Our 'School Reading Takeover' has provided many positive outputs for all involved. Each event calls for at least 30 adult volunteer readers to partner with 2nd grade students over a two hour window.  This year we were able to bring in 64 adult volunteers from all over the state of Michigan.  After reading, students and adults  share what they've learned from the book KT & The Radical Rounball. Then it's all about pizza, party, and more pizza!  Dominos pizza has been a proud sponsor and provider of food for our youth and adults to share.

What's New!!

Each year we attempt to add something new and exciting to our event. This year was no different. Youth and our community volunteers were able to bond and take those moments with them forever via our own School Reading Takeover photo booth.

This was the most amazing community service event I’ve ever been apart of. I’m inspired to do more in my community and to help our future. The youth.
