On March 1st, in celebration of Read Across
America Day, LA Galaxy staff members, 2011 Miss LA Galaxy Lara Hosseinzadeh and
court member Chelsea McGrath visited Eshelman
Avenue Elementary
School as part of its week-long Read Across
America activities. The Galaxy readers shared their love of reading and favorite
books with 1st and 2nd grade students and encouraged them
to read with their siblings and family members. Read Across America is an
annual motivation and awareness program which encourages adults and children to
celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

In partnership with the California Teachers Association
(CTA) for Read Across America, the Galaxy distributed posters for the
classrooms and bookmarks for every student to encourage them to keep reading.

At the conclusion of the event, students were invited to the
library where Miss LA Galaxy Lara Hosseinzadeh and court member Chelsea McGrath
presented Principal Rhonda Pannell with books for the Eshelman Avenue
Elementary School’s library
on behalf of the Galaxy and California Teachers Association.
