November 8th - 22nd

PTA’s Fall Fundraiser kicks off on November 8th. 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...

 

  1. Activate your child’s Read-A-Thon page at the link below. 

  2. ​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 Nov. 8.

Goals

$15,000 Raised

200,000 Minutes read as a school

 

If fundraising goal is met, the grade with the highest amount of minutes read will pick a staff member to silly string! If reading goal is met, ALL students get a book from the new book vending machine.
