Aguilar Kicks Off Reading Tour at Rancho Cucamonga Elementary School
Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar stopped by Los Amigos Elementary School in Rancho Cucamonga to visit and read with second and third grade students. Aguilar, a steadfast supporter of increased investments in k-12 schools, read House Mouse, Senate Mouse with the students, a well-known children’s book that explains the legislative process to kids.
“I’ve got two elementary school students at home, so I know how important it is to invest in education early,” said Rep. Aguilar, who has two school-aged sons. He continued, “Our kids are the future—we need to make sure that we give them every opportunity to learn and thrive, and that starts with having the resources they need to succeed in the classroom.”
Rep. Aguilar read to students from second and third grade classes in Los Amigos Elementary School’s “Dragon Den” library. Today was the first of many elementary school visits for Rep. Aguilar, who is traveling across the district to read with students and highlight the importance of investing in education, from pre-k through college.
