Reading Month is Here!
Wow....what a great start to March is reading month. We hope your readers are as excited as we are about all the fun events happening to celebrate reading this month.
You should have received information about the Read-a-Thon fundraiser this week. This is the initial information packet to get prepared for our official launch of the read-a-thon on Wednesday, March 11th. A HUGE shout out to our families who have already started receiving donations for their readers. You guys are Rock Stars!
The official read-a-thon fundraiser will run from March 11th through March 25th. Additional information will be sent home next week, as well as paper pledge forms for those families who prefer to not use the online tool but still want to participate in the fundraiser. We sincerely appreciate the support of our families who participate in the PTA efforts at school. We truly could not do this without you!!!
Any student who raises any money as part of the read-a-thon will be entered into a drawing for some fun prizes. The prize drawing will be held at Open House on March 26th, however, students are not required to be present to win. Any students that are not present for the drawing, will be able to pick up their prize in the main office.
We have some fun school incentives that will be awarded if we reach or exceed our fundraising goals with the read-a-thon.
If we meet our goal and raise $2700, the school will get a dress like an animal day.
If we reach a challenge goal of $4000, students will also get a bring a (stuffed) friend to school day
If we reach a super challenge goal of $5000, student will get both rewards above and an extra recess on a day determined by their teacher.
We also hope that you will join us for some fun and games at a family event at school on Thursday, March 19th from 6-8pm. Our annual 'Reading Night' event is shaping up to be a 'wild about reading' night. We have an exciting performance that will be from 6:15-7pm. There will also be crafts, face painting, snacks and of course READING!!!! Please see the flyer for more information and visit the sign up genius so you can volunteer to be part of the fun!
