October 31st - November 14th
PTA’s Annual Fundraiser kicks off on October 31st. We are raising money for our school by encouraging lifelong reading!
Over the next few weeks, we have planned many fun events and prizes for our students (read about those below), all designed to grow their most important superpower - reading!
Participating is easy...
Activate your child’s Read-A-Thon page at the link below. The class with the most students registered by October 31st gets a Kona Ice Party!
Log minutes read by your student and collect donations by sharing your reader's page with family and friends by email, text, or social media.
Even if you don’t plan to fundraise, students can earn prizes by logging their reading minutes and even for just creating their page & sharing it with family and friends! Create your student’s page ASAP, but no later than October 31st.
