"Cal State L.A., Here We Come"
A year-end carnival celebrating the accomplishments of hundreds of children who completed this year’s America Reads/America Counts Program. The America Reads Program--in its fifth year at Cal State L.A.--is a response to President Clinton’s challenge for our nation to come together in addressing the issue of literacy in elementary schools. The America Reads Program works with students in grades K through 3, preparing them to read at grade level by fourth grade. The math component of this program, America Counts, was introduced in 2000, to improve math skills of children in fourth and fifth grades.

Be sure to visit the information tables to pick up resources on how to keep your friends and family safe while they celebrate this holiday season.
