Public Invited To March 4 Literacy Day Festival

San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) is holding a free Literacy Day Festival on Saturday, March 4. Students, families, and the local community are invited to attend and celebrate their love of and the importance of literacy.

For the past several years, the SBCUSD Literacy Task Force, which includes preschool through high school educators, administrators, department leads, specialists, and community members, has planned virtual and in-person activities and programs to support in-class literacy instruction. 

“The Literacy Day Festival is our big celebration of literacy,” said Director of Elementary Instruction Amy Coker. “It’s meant to foster a love of reading in our students and their families, which in turn can help everyone achieve more.”

SBCUSD, and especially the Literacy Task Force, hopes that local families will embrace the importance of literacy by attending the Festival, taking home one or more of the hundreds of free books that will be available, and celebrating the District’s award-winning young readers. 

The Literacy Day Festival is set for Saturday, March 4, 2023, 9 a.m.–1 p.m., at San Gorgonio High School, 2299 Pacific Street in San Bernardino. Light refreshments, swag, and books will be available for free to attendees while supplies last.

If you plan to attend the Literacy Day Festival and require reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact the SBCUSD Affirmative Action Office at (909) 381-1122 or at least 10 days before the event.

The District is expecting big crowds at San Gorgonio High that day, so families are encouraged to arrive early.
