March is Read Across America Month!

Options For Learning - Committee for Educating Policy Leaders

2017 Read Across America Event

Every year, Options for Learning's Committee for Educating Policy Leaders (CEPL) invites community leaders to visit our child development programs in celebration of Read Across America.  We always have a fantastic turnout and the children are delighted to have visitors read to them.  Since Dr. Seuss's birthday is celebrated in March, his beloved classics are often chosen for this event.

Read Across America is an opportunity to connect with the children in our programs and see the importance of literacy in action at our various centers.  After reading to the children, our guests are encouraged to stay for continued learning activities and games involving the book they just read. 

Look who's coming to visit this year:

  • Senator Anthony Portantino & representative Talin Mangioglu
  • Assemblyman Phillip Chen & representative Kristy MacDougall
  • Laura Jimenez representative of Senator Hernandez
  • Jessica Leyva representative of Senator Hernandez
