The Los Angeles D-Fenders visited Ramona Elementary School in Hawthorne this week as part of the NBA D-League Read to Achieve initiative. Eloy Vargas visited two third grade dual immersion classes. Third graders in the dual immersion program at Ramona Elementary receive 60% of their instruction in Spanish and 40% in English. Vargas read two books in Spanish to a group of 50 followed by a student lead Q and A also in Spanish. Vargas finished the morning with autographs and pictures with all the students. The D-Fenders are committed to giving back to our community, for information about how to bring the D-Fenders to your school please contact the D-Fenders community relations department at D-FendersCR@d-fenders.com.
