Read Across Santa Cruz County

Once again, the Santa Cruz County School Superintendent’s Office and School Superintendent Alfredo I. Velásquez, celebrated, along with 35 Private Schools, Charter Schools and Public Elementary Schools within
our county, National Read Across America/Read on Santa Cruz County Week from February 28th to March 8th. With the coordination of Ms. Patricia Barraza- Preciado (Santa Cruz County School Superintendent’s
Office,) they had over 108 volunteers from all across Santa Cruz County read to each and every classroom in our educational community.

The main goal of this event is to encourage our children to read and to
love reading at an early age. It’s one of the most important things we can do as parents and as a community. It sets the foundation for a lifetime of success.

School Superintendent Alfredo I. Velásquez

The Santa Cruz County School Superintendent’s Office, would like to thank each and every one who volunteered a couple of hours of their busy day to participate in this wonderful event. The children of Santa Cruz County, THANK YOU as well.
