2020 Readathon for K-5th Graders

Dear K-5th families -- Please look for a letter sent home with your student this week about the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation's 2020 Readathon. The event will run from January 25th - February 7th. Early next week you should receive an email invitation from liz@smfcedfund.org to activate your student’s 99Pledges fundraising page. If you do not receive an email, please visit smfcedfund.org/readathon for login instructions.  Our goal is to raise $25 per student and $100,000 as a whole.

Also, your kids won’t want to miss our kick-off reading events on Saturday, January 25th!  The Foster City Library will host a community read-aloud event with special guests Elephant & Piggy from 2-3:30pm. The San Mateo Main Library will host a pajama read-aloud event from 6-7:30pm. Please come join the fun! The SMFC Education Foundation (www.smfcedfund.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to reaching every child in the SMFC School District.
