Read A Book Day

Deputies Participate In Read-A-Book Day At Head Start Pre-School 

Yulee, Fla. – Sheriff Bill Leeper and deputies from the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office had the opportunity to read to students at the Callahan Head Start pre-school on Thursday, March 12, 2015.  Students listened attentively as each deputy read a book of interest to the kids.  Afterwards, all the children went outside to look at and sit in a patrol car.  Some talked over the PA system and some even turned on the siren.  The kids and deputies all had a great time interacting with one another.

Callahan Head Start is located in Callahan, FL. It is a preschool that serves children ages 3-5 and offers instructional programs in reading and math.

Head Start is a federally funded school readiness, Pre-K program that serves the neediest families in Nassau County.  The school is always looking for donations like art supplies, clothes, food, books, or someone to help plant a garden on their playground.  During the school year students take field trips, participate in a fall festival, put on a Christmas play, and hold an end-of-the-year graduation & celebration ceremony.
