Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Last March 13th we were delighted to present to the kids at our Zoom reading clubs that month a musical performance video created for us by the The Lucky Band!
Since we traditionally bring music to our March reading clubs, for our March 12th reading clubs this year we are looking for a band or musician willing to create a kid-friendly, highly engaging music video we can share with the kids for those "Music & Entertainment" reading clubs.
If you or someone you know can share their gift of music via video with our students and volunteers, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
FEBRUARY 12TH READING CLUBS ON ZOOM,
RSVPS TO OPEN SOON
We are eager for next month's virtual summer reading clubs on February 12th, but first need to recruit enough teachers to be Zoom hosts for them.
As soon as we confirm enough teacher hosts (ideally by next week), you can then
submit your RSVP for those "People &
Places Around the World" reading
clubs on our website!
(We are also in regular communication with the principals about when we may be able to return to in-person reading clubs on their campuses.)
NINE MORE RUNNERS NEEDED
FOR THE 2022 LA MARATHON,
13.1 MILE CHARITY CHALLENGE,
Do you know any runners? Are you a
runner? Please forward this email to them
and ask them to join
Team Reading to Kids in the 2022 Los
Angeles Marathon on Sunday,
We're looking for at least three more marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13.1 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.
If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the LA Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
share this Facebook group with any of your runner
friends to encourage them to join our team!
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
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 Los Angeles Marathon website.
