Get ready for a week of reading, learning, and FUN at Doniphan that kicks off this Friday, February 22nd!


Doniphan Dolphins love to read! That's why we're doing a Read-a-thon this year to raise money for programs that directly benefit our students and school community.


A Read-a-thon is a fundraiser where students collect donations from family and friends in exchange for a commitment to read (or be read to) during a designated time period. At Doniphan, all students will “drop everything and read” for at least 30 minutes a day during the school day for one week, from February 25 through March 1. Students can choose to challenge themselves with additional reading time outside of school for bonus prizes.


Our Read-a-thon will raise money for:
* Field Trips
* Student-led Grant funding for playground equipment & more!
* Classroom supplies & other school improvements
* Family Fun Events like Trunk or Treat, Bingo, & Movie Night
* Visiting authors and cultural arts programming
* Fifth grade recognition celebrations
* Teacher and staff appreciation


Look for emails and flyers coming soon about how to access your student's personal online pledge page that can be shared with friends and family via email and social media.


And don't forget about our fun Dress-up Days scheduled for the week of February 25-March 1:
