The PTA is excited to announce 217’s first ever “Once Upon A Time Read-a-thon” - to reinforce good reading habits! Our goal is to make our students stronger, more enthusiastic readers! So we encourage students to get pledges from family, relatives, and neighbors to sponsor their reading over the Read-a-thon period.
There will be a detailed flyer coming home tomorrow, including a reading log for students - so keep an eye out! Read-a-thon participants will be asked to:
Log reading minutes into their calendar (for a number of days)
Collect pledges from sponsors & return their pledge forms and any earnings
ALL participants will win a Certificate of Completion and chances to win other great prizes!
Please note that participation is optional. But even if you plan to opt out of fundraising, we encourage your child to participate by reading daily!!
If you have any questions or comments, please contact our
Read-a-thon coordinator, Serife Gokdemir at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LET’S HAVE FUN AND READ!
