    • Read Along with SUPERintendent Thompson

      Read Along with SUPERintendent Alicia Thompson is a fun way to help young children, ages 4 – 8, become SUPER Readers! Watch and read along as Dr. Thompson reads aloud fun children’s books and asks questions about the books to help students better understand the story.

      Read Along with SUPERintendent Alicia Thompson can be viewed on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 9 a.m. on WPS-TV, online or on Cox Cable Channel 20 or by searching WPS-TV on the Livestream app for your phone, Roku and Apple TV. 


      The videos are available below on this webpage or the Wichita Public Schools YouTube page to allow children and parents to watch again at their convenience.

      Dr. Thompson recorded the videos with written consent from the books’ authors and publishers.

      Read Along with SUPERintendent Alicia Thompson supports increasing 3rd grade reading proficiency – one of the long-term goals with the Every Student Future Ready Strategic Plan.
