San Angelo READS! Summer Book Patrol is Back!

San Angelo READS! Summer Book Patrol is Back!

San Angelo ISD is excited to announce the return of our San Angelo READS! Summer Book Patrol program, to inspire a love of reading all summer long with book giveaways.

The Summer Book Patrol will kick off Tuesday, June 11, 2024 with deliveries of books to children in our community along with some goodies provided by H-E-B. Join us in inspiring a love of reading by nominating a child in the San Angelo area to receive a visit from the Summer Book Patrol and free books through our nomination form

Last summer, the District delivered more than 215 books to students from all 17 of our elementary campuses as part of the Summer Book Patrol. The District is proud to partner with H-E-B and to support the H-E-B Read 3 program, which focuses on educating parents and caregivers about the need to read to their children a minimum of three times per week. 

To stay up-to-date on San Angelo ISD, please visit the SAISD website at and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Community members are encouraged to share how they celebrate literacy and participate in San Angelo Reads! through the hashtag, #SAISDReads.

San Angelo READS!

The San Angelo Reads! community-wide literacy initiative was founded by the District in 2020 to promote and encourage reading and the SAISD future-ready learner profile attributes among SAISD students and the greater San Angelo community. The goal of the literacy initiative is to increase awareness of the importance of literacy and to inspire a love for reading. This exciting initiative is driven by statistics which show how vitally important literacy is to providing all students with the opportunities to succeed at a young age. Children and teenagers who read for pleasure on a daily or weekly basis score better on reading and writing tests than infrequent or non-readers.

SAISD kicked off San Angelo READS! on December 9, 2020 with the first annual San Angelo Reads! Day, a day when literacy was celebrated at every SAISD elementary campus with literacy fun like read-ins, unveiling book vending machines and a gift of a book to all SAISD 3rd graders compliments of the San Angelo Area Foundation. SAISD is focused on building literacy skills that create students who are prepared for future successes, inside and outside the classroom and beyond their time in our hallways.
