JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

This week, you'll find Pascagoula-Gautier School District Superintendent Wayne Rodolfich hanging out in front of two stores. He's not there to shop, but to encourage parents to read to their children during the summer break.

Rodolfich says while reading scores are great for a majority of third graders in his district, he wants to make sure all children succeed. He says reading shouldn't stop, even when children are out of school.

Rodolfich says he believes the world of literacy will come to an end if parents do not read to their kids.

Trang Pham Bui will tell you more about the superintendent's outreach story tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
