We invite all PS 107 families to participate in the 5th Annual Read-A-Thon to help promote literacy and a love of reading with our students.
This year we will be kicking off the Read-A-Thon with a Schoolwide Pajama Day on Friday, February 15th. The Read-A-Thon runs from February 15th through Sunday, March 3rd. All reading during that time (including assigned reading) counts towards the Read-A-Thon. Parent/Guardian assisted reading is allowed for K and 1st grade.
There will be prizes for top readers in each grade (K-5) as well as prizes for the top readers from the entire school! Prizes will be awarded in the form of gift certificates from our generous sponsors, Powerhouse Books, Terrace Books, Books Are Magic, and Nitehawk Cinemas!
In addition to fostering the love of reading, the Read-A-Thon also raises money to fund programs and activities at PS 107! Donors can pledge a certain amount per minute read or may make a flat pledge. Donations can be made online.
Attached are the Read-A-Thon directions, friends & family letter, reading log,and sponsor form. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
This year’s Read-A-Thon is sponsored by Powerhouse Bookstore, Terrace Books, Books Are Magic and Nitehawk Cinema! In addition to gift certificates, Powerhouse is offering 10% off and Terrace Books is offering 20% off on kids’ books purchased by PS 107 students between February 8 and March 3rd!
