Realtors Supporting Our Schools
Local Realtors are invited to participate in our “Realtors Read Across Pasadena 2019” on March 1st! This local program, (which is aligned with National Read Across America Day, an observance in the United States held on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss), gives you the opportunity to become involved in our community schools and read to elementary aged children. Plan on about an hour or so total.
Teachers will have a selection of books for you to choose from or you are welcome to bring your favorite Dr. Seuss book or other childhood favorite to read, as well. The students look forward to this every year and you will come away feeling energized and with more knowledge of our schools. This opportunity can be an excellent talking point with your clients.
“We loved connecting with our community’s amazing teachers and students as well as being a part of such an enjoyable educational program.”
—Emilie Broughton, Town Square Real Estate
Realtors Read Across Pasadena is an effort of PEF’s REALTOR INITIATIVE, a collaboration with local Realtors, the Pasadena Education Network (PEN), and the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) that recognizes the enormously important role Realtors play in influencing our community’s view of our public schools. Working together, we strive to provide opportunities for Realtors to become better educated about our public school offerings and encourage Realtors to be active ambassadors for PEF, PEN, and especially the PUSD.

As Dr. Seuss’s character The Lorax says,
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Our Realtors Read campaign is done is conjunction with Read Across PASadena that salutes National Read Across America Week, the annual national reading event that honors the March 2nd birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss. Schools also host readings by local leaders, parents and community members during the week.
