Read-a-thon Fundraiser
Mon, Jan 14 - Thu, Jan 31
Kyrene de los Lagos

Our Read-a-thon started today!

Be sure to encourage your Mustang to get reading!

A copy of the letter attached and the information below will also be sent home (excuse our typo on the version sent home ;]

 

Our goal is to promote reading as a fun and exciting activity. Through online pledges that support individual students' reading efforts, this event also serves as a fundraiser for our school. All proceeds will help fund the replacement of trade books in the classroom!


A successful Read-A-Thon depends on the involvement of every student at Lagos. Whether you raise $15, $25 or $250 it all goes towards our amazing school, so please consider participating. Our goal is 100% participation. If every student collects at least $20, we could raise $10,000.

 

The Read-A-Thon also brings our Lagos community together through class competitions, prizes and three weeks of fun activities! PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN THIS VERY IMPORTANT FUNDRAISER!

Reading Rules

• Please only log in minutes that your student has read! The website tracks students when they enter more then 2-3 reading sessions at a time and will automatically re-set your minutes if too many sessions are entered at a time. Please be honest when entering minutes. We want our top readers to win fairly.
• Reading before and after school counts.
• Being read to by other people counts. (Especially, for Kinder-First grade classes)
• If your teacher assigns reading homework, it counts too.
