Read to Succeed

At Eureka City Schools, early literacy is a top priority.

We understand that early literacy skills are essential for children to become successful, competent readers and that reading proficiency plays a pivotal role in shaping a child's educational journey and future academic success. Research has shown that children's experiences with books and print can significantly influence their reading comprehension and early literacy development. 

The District and its educators are committed to nurturing these skills, and we are working to raise awareness about their importance and encourage caregiver involvement.  

In this video, you'll hear from Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services Jennifer Johnson, Elementary Literacy Coach Maikken Bass, Board Member Rebecca Pardoe, Lafayette Principal Quincy Brownfield, First-grade Teacher Marissa Cardenas, and ECS students.

They provide insights into early literacy skills, how our schools instill a love of reading and books with literacy-rich environments and experiences, how our educators help students reach reading goals, and the newly adopted Language Arts curriculum aligned with current research-based best practices.

Please check out the video to learn more and to see how you can get involved!
