Lightfoot Elementary fourth and fifth grade students are participating in the Redskins Charitable Foundation Reading Program, Redskins Read, for the 2018-2019 school year. Several students were provided an opportunity to attend the Redskins vs Texans game on November 18, 2018. One student was selected as the 2nd Half Kickoff Kid. He got to run out on the field to pick up the kicking tee after halftime and was featured on the Jumbotron. The students’ tickets were donated by Pernell McPhee (#96) and the Redskins Charitable Foundation.
The students participate monthly and record their answers in a Redskins Read Playbook provided by the Redskins Charitable Foundation. This activity aligns with the school goals of increasing time in text and metacognitive skills.
