Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading skills. Sign up today for our July 9th "Summer Fun & Games" reading clubs and help encourage kids to continue reading even in the summer!

Our summer reading clubs are smaller, so be sure to sign up early. Please also join our July 9th Facebook event so your friends will see that you're attending and you can invite them to join you!

Note about Alta Loma: For June, July and August, Alta Loma is closed for construction. Alta Loma remains an enthusiastic Reading to Kids partner school, but no programs can operate during construction.

For the summer months we encourage Alta Loma volunteers to RSVP for any of our other 7 schools! We'll be back at Alta Loma on Saturday, Sept. 10th, when we'll really need all of you and your friends for our big, back-to-school reading clubs!


Do you know any runners? Please ask them to run for a reason by joining Team Reading to Kids in next year's 2017 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 19th!

The dollars they raise will go to support our monthly reading clubs. If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org by July 1st!

IMPORTANT NOTE: To register to run on behalf of Reading to Kids, you MUST receive from us a special web address to use when registering on the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon website.
