For many years, HTA has been supplementing our Language Arts Curriculum with the Accelerated Reader (AR) program. In 2015, HTA held a Read-A-Thon and raised over $14,000. These funds, along with help from our amazing PTO, were able to finance AR for two (2) years. We have depleted all of HTA’s AR funds and therefore, we are having another Read-A-Thon. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000. By promoting a love for reading, we hope to raise the monies needed to purchase AR for the 2019-20 school year.
Students (with parents help) need to start finding sponsors to support their reading. Students will receive prizes for the minutes they read. Top three students with the most money collected ($$) by March 4th will receive vouchers to use at the HTA Book Fair. (3/1-3/8) The top 3 classrooms with the most money ($$) collected will receive a celebration with Mrs. Bacon and/or Mrs. Garland.
