Wow! Thanks to the efforts of our students and their parenting adults, we raised $49,328 for the Day of Reading!!!

This year’s theme is

THE WONDER OF TALES

This year, our students are not just raising money for Oak Grove, they also chose to raise funds to benefit the larger Ojai community. Our students identified the need to purchase new, safer vans for day trips and travel, and they also chose to raise funds to support food delivery to home-bound seniors, which is provided through the service organization HELP of Ojai.

Want to learn more about Day of Reading?

There are two weeks of inspiring friends and family to give! Day of Reading launches on Wednesday, February 2, and culminates on Wednesday, February 16. On the Day of Reading, Wednesday, February 16, Oak Grove students come to school in their pajamas, along with a favorite stuffed toy and a treasured book or two. The day is spent exploring the magic of words and pictures.

The Day of Reading is a different kind of student fundraiser — one that inspires the imagination, links children together through the magic of storytelling, AND raises money for some exciting enhancements to our campus and programs. Our students look forward to their friends and family sponsoring them to spend a day at school doing what they love – reading!

We are currently seeking a Matching Donor with the hope of having a total of $5,000 (or more) matching funds. Would you like to match or increase the amount? Email Jacqueline Valle or call 646-8236 x153.

Our Day of Reading generally follows this plan in person:

STUDENTS: After 14 days of inspiring friends and family to give, on February 16, Oak Grove students come to school in their jammies, along with a favorite stuffed toy and a treasured book. The day is spent exploring the magic of words and pictures.

This year’s Day of Reading is different!
With the funds raised by our students, we will purchase new, safer vans for day trips and travel, and support food delivery to home-bound seniors, which is provided through the service organization HELP of Ojai.

The event spreads beyond campus to extended family and friends, because each one of us can make a donation large or small to sponsor the Day of Reading.

Sponsor a student today.
Thank you for helping to make a difference!

“We want our two girls to be supported with a foundation of compassion, intellectual inquiry, and creative expression. We want them to build on the qualities of joy and curiosity that they embody right now so that they remain the essential parts of who they are as adults.”
