Project Description

Country: USA

Location: San Marcos, CA

Total Budget: $4,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Literacy Project to provide books to each 1st grade student in Title 1 schools in San Marcos, CA


The San Marcos Unified School District has seven Title 1 schools, those with a student base where at least 40% come from low-income families. The Rotary Club of San Marcos helps to address this and promote literacy by spending time reading to children. The Club will use the funds to purchase a book for each first grade student and if any, also first/second grade student combo classes. The book title is selected with assistance from the Unified School District.

Project chair orders the books and upon receiving delivery, club members gather and paste Rotary Club of San Marcos stickers inside each book. Teams of two Rotarians visit each classroom, tell the students about Rotary and read the book to them. This book is then distributed to each student to keep and for many, this is the first new book they have ever had!

The Literacy Project will take place in fall 2018.
