In light of the latest developments with the COVID-19 coronavirus, and based on the advice from our partner schools and the LAUSD, we have canceled the March 14th reading clubs this Saturday.
We always follow our schools' lead when it comes to the reading clubs, and under these circumstances we certainly agree that it is best for all that the reading clubs not occur this Saturday.
Notably, this is the first time in the almost 21-year history of Reading to Kids that no reading club will happen on the second Saturday of the month at one of our partner schools.
Having already purchased the read-aloud books for this month's reading clubs, we will still be donating those books to our partner schools for use in their classrooms and libraries.
We very much appreciate your desire to share your love of reading with the kids, and we will resume our monthly reading clubs when the schools advise us it is appropriate to do so.
APRIL 11th READING CLUBS?
In the meantime, below is a great way for you to channel your support!
HELP OUR MARATHON RUNNERS
REACH THEIR FUNDRAISING GOAL!
Last weekend Team Reading to Kids collectively ran 403 miles
at the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon and Big 5K!
Head over towards the bottom of their website
to see a slideshow
of our runners before, during, and after their races.
They have now raised $17,505, and you can still donate to their fundraising pages to help them reach their $20,000 goal!
Thank you very much for your support, and we hope you can join us at our next reading clubs
(the second Saturday of each month), perhaps as early as
