Read Across America

On Friday, March 2, 2018, the teachers and education support professionals of Rucker Elementary,

want to get the word out about the importance of children's literacy. The National Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America is a year-round literacy project that encourages readers, both young and old, to celebrate reading. Right here in Gilroy, we're getting into the reading excitement, too. Gilroy Unified School District is hosting an Annual Read – In.  


At Rucker Elementary we are looking for community members to come read to students from 8:30 a.m  to 9:30 a.m.

Reception will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the staff lounge.Books will be provided, or you are free to  bring your own and donate an autographed copy to the classroom. 


Join in on the fun because you're never too old,

too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child!
