-Linden's Read-a-thon will happen during PSSA testing April 9-27

-Encourage your child(ren) to read every night of Read-a-thon and work toward the school's collective goal of reading for 100,000 minutes. Time spent reading to your child also counts toward the total.  Record reading time on a piece of paper and submit it daily to your child's homeroom teacher. 

-Every 10,000 minutes that the school collectively reads will a new unlock reward like homework passes, extra recess, popcorn parties, special assemblies, etc.  Something extra special will happen if the students read for 100,000 minutes!
