(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: Not only were the Rams busy with their “On-Field” practices and preparations for the always Special NFL Week 1, they were also very busy with their “Off-the-Field” and impactful community relations activities. These two activities coincided nicely with each other as the Team was getting ready to host its first Home game of the season at SoFi Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers.
In keeping with that thought, we were invited to their “Ride With Rampage”…[to SoFi Stadium on Game-Day] educational outreach visit to the 156th St. Elementary School, in Gardena, CA. We covered this most unique presentation, under the auspices of the Rams Reader Literacy program. The beneficiaries were of course, the school’s very diverse 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes who were seated in this Learning session inside of their well-distinguished auditorium.
We hope you will enjoy the educational video highlight production that we’ve completed and are exclusively sharing with all of our regular followers, and those new daily viewers who have discovered our website. We now present our production to you, our viewers. In addition to our perspective, we also refer you to the news announcement (see below) that the Rams Corporate Communications Team published as well.
In anticipation of the Los Angeles Rams 2023 home opener versus the San Francisco 49ers, two Rams Cheerleaders and mascot Rampage visited the 156th Street Elementary School, located in Gardena, CA to read the team’s children’s book, “Ride with Rampage,” to more than 170 first through third grade students as part of the Rams Readers literacy program. Each student also received their own copy of the book and a Rams bookmark to take home.
“Ride With Rampage” is a key component of the Rams Readers program, which encourages students to explore the excitement that reading can provide while helping improve literacy rates among students throughout Los Angeles.
The book centers around mascot Rampage, driving a Rams-branded double decker bus around Southern California, picking up young Rams fans and Rams Cheerleaders at each stop along the scenic route to the team’s home at SoFi Stadium.
The Rams kicked off the Rams Readers literacy program and released Ride with Rampage on March 2, 2022, in celebration of last year’s Read Across America Day. Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually in March in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Since launching the program in 2022, the Rams have visited more than 38 schools and distributed over 7,000 copies of Ride with Rampage to first through third grade students in schools across Southern California.
Copies of Ride with Rampage can be purchased at www.ramsfanshop.com, Amazon, and in select Barnes & Noble locations across Los Angeles. All proceeds from retail purchases will benefit the Los Angeles Rams Foundation.
