Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

If you have ever enjoyed our reading clubs, you have these folk to thank!

Our founders in 1999
Founding principal Raul Fernandez, with founding teachers Silvia Rubalcava (on the left, now an Assistant Principal at LA Elem.) and Maricela Sanchez (on the right), along with founding volunteers Jon Tomlin, Sean Morris, and Jason Axe.

Reading to Kids began 20 years ago this Saturday with a few volunteers, a visionary principal, and the wonderful teachers at Gratts Elementary!

We may still have a few spots open for our Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales reading clubs this Saturday. Keep checking our sign-up page to volunteer!
