Read to Achieve Assembly at Vargas with Warriors and Reading Partners

What an amazing opportunity Vargas Elementary 2-5 graders had Sept. 18, 2018, to hear former Warriors player Adonal Foyle and Olympic gold medalist basketball player Ruthie Bolton at a Read to Achieve assembly! The players invited students up on stage to take turns reading Frog and Toad Are Friends before Foyle invited students up to take turns reading his own children’s book, Too-Tall Foyle Finds His Game!

Students then took the Read to Achieve Pledge: http://www.nba.com/community/rta_pledge.html

Read to Achieve is an early literacy program that offers exciting literacy activities and experiences to help young students develop a love for reading. Thank you Warriors Community Foundation and Reading Partners Silicon Valley for making this happen!
