San Angelo Reads! Day

The first annual San Angelo READS! Day was held Wednesday, December 9th, 2020! San Angelo ISD joined with community partners in a city-wide proclamation of San Angelo READS! Day to promote literacy in our community. The community was encouraged to read with a child, donate a book to a child in need, or support literacy in San Angelo. 

San Angelo ISD elementary school campuses spent the day celebrating literacy with special activities for our SAISD students. Also, each 3rd grade student received a copy of the book "San Angelo A to Z - A Young Reader's Guide" by Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond compliments of the San Angelo Area Foundation. Why 3rd graders? Children who do not read on grade level by the end of the third grade only have a 1 in 8 chance of catching up to other students who are reading within their grade level and are 4 times more likely to drop out of school.

From “A is for Art” to “Z is for Zapatos”, join San Angelo ISD 3rd graders and our community partners as they read "San Angelo A-Z" by Linda Thorsen Bond, a young reader’s guide, for a tour of San Angelo and learn fascinating tidbits and facts about the City along the way.

In honor of San Angelo READS! Day, all San Angelo ISD 3rd grade students received a copy of the book "San Angelo A to Z - A Young Reader's Guide" by Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond, compliments of San Angelo Area Foundation. Dr. Bond joined us at Bradford Elementary to read her book live.
