March 8th was a busy day for the foundation as another school in the San Diego area celebrated the opening of their new Think Big Reading Room. Students at San Marcos Elementary heard the buzz about their camping-themed reading room just days before the opening, and they were blown away when they got a glimpse of it for the first time. A camper-shaped tent is parked a few feet away from a circle of camping chairs surrounding a fire pit decorated with marshmallows on sticks roasting in the fire. Comfy pillows cover the floor inside the reading tepee, and mats line the floor underneath a long counter, perfect for those readers who prefer to read undercover. What is even better is the finely decorated space is lined with hundreds of books! Community members and special guests came to join the fun as the festivities started with a third grade class singing a reading-parody of Pharrell’s Happy. Special remarks by the principal honored the Gagons, who sponsored yet another Think Big Reading Room.
Camp S’More Reading Room is the 16th to be sponsored by the Gagon Trust.
