Grinch Charged with PC 487 (Grand Theft – Christmas)

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 03, 2015

Santa Clara County Judges adopt San Jose’s Horace Mann School for the Court’s annual participation in Read Across America.

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. (March 3, 2015): Nineteen judges from the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara (Court) volunteered during their lunch hour to celebrate national Read Across America at this year’s sponsored school -- San Jose Unified School District’s Horace Mann School. Judges read stories that were either written by Dr. Seuss, celebrated Black History Month or gave a child's perspective into the court system. All of the books selected and ready by the judges were donated to the school, including many Dr. Seuss books that were purchased during the holidays by Court staff to support this event.

 

Sponsored by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books.

 

"Our adoption of a school for Read Across America is truly one of our most cherished annual traditions at the Court. Aside from being a fun, educationally enriching experience, students benefit from seeing firsthand the strong ethnic and gender diversity of Santa Clara County’s bench," said Judge Julia Alloggiamento, Chair of the Court's Community Outreach Committee. " It’s not simply story time for our judges It’s an opportunity for us to spend some real quality time with young people, sharing our personal stories and hopefully inspiring the next generation to become whatever they dream, whether that be a judge, teacher or carpenter."
