What is a Read-A-Thon?
A Read-a-thon is similar in concept to a Walk-a-thon, but instead of exercising their bodies by tracking how much they walk, our students will be exercising their brains by tracking how much they read. This fundraiser for our school involves no selling of products, only pledges of sponsorship from friends and family for the number of minutes that the sponsored student(s) read during a specific time period.
Why a Read-a-thon?
This Read-a-thon is our only fundraiser for this year (other than Dine & Donates)! This is our most important event for generating money through collection of sponsorships and pledges and will help us to provide classroom supplies and support for family engagement activities for this school year. So, as you can see, this is a very important event for our little school--we need your support!
Readathon Packets are available at the school office, or you can download and print via the links below.
These are documents to help with tallying reading and collecting pledges. You'll also receive an email to collect pledges online using 99pledges.
