Students at Roosevelt K-8 School in Hyde Park had an awesome day on December 9, 2015. In addition to high-fives from Marcus Smart, each student received a copy of “Jumanji” by Massachusetts author Chris Van Allsburg. The school had the highest reading participation for the month of November through the Celtics Read to Achieve Program, winning an in-school assembly featuring Smart and other members of the organization. Since arriving in Boston, Smart had a special dedication to local children with his YounGameChanger Foundation.
