Representing the 15th District of California


Read Across America

Dear Friend,

Last week, in celebration of Read Across America Day, I read to Ms. Cano’s third grade class at Vannoy Elementary School in Castro Valley.

I wish I could have joined them in person, but because I was voting in DC, I read “Clifford Goes to Washington” via Skype from my office on Capitol Hill. It was fun to see these bright students in action; they had great questions and demonstrated a love for learning.

Literacy is essential for ensuring the future success of our students. Read Across America Day is a great way to engage our young readers and let them know reading is fun! We must not stop there. Let us work together to find ways to make reading exciting every day of the year. Let me know how I can help you promote literacy.

If you would like me to visit your students in the classroom, please reach out to one of my East Bay Offices at 510-370-3322 or 925-460-5100. To stay in touch with events in the district, you can also connect with me on Twitter @RepSwalwell and on Facebook. If you have not already, please sign up to continue receiving my e-newsletter.
