First Lady Jessica Doyle to visit Gilmore Middle School July 7

First Lady Jessica Doyle will visit a summer school classroom in the Racine Unified School District on July 7. 

Doyle will spend time at Gilmore Middle School with soon-to-be high school freshmen who are part of the District’s summer school program called North Star Academy. Doyle will visit a class to discuss with students the importance of reading throughout the summer to prevent the “summer slide.” She will also bring books to donate, discuss some of the selections and allow students the opportunity to ask questions.   

Doyle is a strong advocate for literacy. She has a book club called Read On Wisconsin! for teachers, parents and students across the state. During her visit to with the students at Gilmore Middle School, Mrs. Doyle will also inform students about the Wisconsin Covenant and encourage them to begin planning for higher education from the start of high school.
