Acacia Magnet School for Enriched Learning Celebrates Read Across America Day with the Los Angeles Rams

In celebration of Read Across America Day and in continuation of Rams Readers literacy program, the Los Angeles Rams visited our Acacia Magnet School for Enriched Learning to read to students as part of the team’s March Staff Day of Service.

Rams Cheerleaders and front office staff members read the team's children's book, Ride with Rampage, to Acacia Cub first through third grade scholars. Rampage the mascot was also in attendance. Each student was encouraged to read along with their classroom’s guest reader with their very own copy of the Ride with Rampage book that they received. Students were also given Rams bookmarks to take home.

Ride with Rampage is a key component of the Rams Readers program, which encourages students to explore the excitement that reading can provide. The book centers around mascot Rampage, driving a Rams-branded double decker bus around Southern California, picking up young Rams fans and Rams Cheerleaders at each stop along the scenic route to the Rams’ home at SoFi Stadium.

The Rams kicked off the Rams Readers literacy program and released Ride with Rampage on March 2, 2022, in celebration of last year’s Read Across America Day. Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually in March in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Since launching the program, the Rams have visited more than 35 schools and distributed over 7,000 copies of Ride with Rampage to first through third grade students.

Thank you Los Angeles Rams for sharing your love for and the importance of reading with our students!
