Description: Annual student-involved fundraising event, where students have the option to participate in a structured and enthusiastic schoolwide event, tracking their minutes read while raising critical funds for the school.
Number of chairs: 2-3
General volunteer needs: Additional help is very needed on a variety of tasks, from championing the event in classrooms, to monitoring minutes read and money raised, to designing, developing and printing materials – volunteers are critical to maximizing dollars raised!
** The 11th Annual Read-A-Thon is taking place on Sep 25 - Oct 10, 2023 **
This year's theme is "Roadtrip Read-a-thon" We will have a number of fun and exciting activities to promote the joy of reading with our students while encouraging them to help raise money for our school. Some of the events are:
- Reading challenges to complete on the reading tracker during the 2-week period to earn prizes
- Shop & Donate events with local businesses such as Books, Inc ,Tomatina, and Tuckers
- A surprise event with Mr. Sahakian if we meet our fundraising goal at the end of the 2 weeks (i.e. last year’s Splash Tower or 2021’s Mr Sahakian Workout Challenge,)
