The San Marcos Rotary Club has purchased 950 popular Mo Willem’s books “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.” Rotary Club members will be reading it to first grade students in seven SMUSD schools during the month of February. Each student will then receive the book to take home. Through this Literacy Project, the Rotary Club will be encouraging children to read on their own plus stressing the importance of life-long reading. The Title 1 elementary schools who will be taking part in this project are Alvin Dunn, Joli Ann Leichtag, Knob Hill, Paloma, Richland, San Marcos and Twin Oaks.
