Read-A-Thon Halfway Point Winners!
Mon, Mar 11 9:30pm
John Burroughs Elementary

Thank you to all our participants, sponsors, and volunteers who are making this Read-A-Thon a success!

 

As of 4:30pm on Sunday, March 10 (right after our weekend library reading session):

Top Fundraiser: Thembi C., with $883 (in the last day since then she has raised $125 more, putting her total at $1,008!)
Top Reader: Gavin R., with 3h45m (after attending all the library reading sessions so far!)

 

Thembi and Gavin will receive bags filled with goodies like fun memo pads and pens, advance reader copies of great new children’s books, stickers, buttons, bookmarks, tattoos, and more!

 

Leading the class competition:

Top Fundraisers: Ms. Thompson’s class with Thembi’s $883
Top Readers: the entire 3rd grade, thanks to Ms. Nolan recording all of their in-class reading time!

 

Also of note:

Most Active Fundraisers: Ms. Graham’s class ($415) and Ms. Cross’ class ($325), each with three students actively fundraising online.

 

We have so far raised $2,503 (31% of our goal) between 12 active fundraising students online. Please help us meet our $8,000 goal by asking your friends and family for even just $5 donations, they add up and every little bit helps. Many friends will want to support great Title 1 schools like ours, they just need to be asked!

 

We have 280 students, if each raises $20 more this week we will meet our goal!
