American Ninja Reader starts today!

The signs are posted, reading logs are coming home,  and 99pledges.com is live! Our Read-A-Thon team kicked off the fundraiser today with the students during lunch with a sneak peek at the prizes! It's officially time to start collecting sponsors and logging all that reading. 

Once students set their reading goal, they can be sponsored with set donation amounts or per/hour of reading. Make sure your student logs all minutes/hours so that we can tally them at the end of the fundraiser.  All envelopes are due to your student's teacher on Friday, 12/1.

The buzz around campus today was centered around: 

1) Prizes: 

There are 3 levels of individual prizes - Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Students earn prizes based on the amount of reading they log and the amount of money they raise. The top 3 fundraisers and top reader in EACH grade level will also receive a special prize AND every student that reaches the gold level will be entered into a grand prize drawing, with a chance to win a Rock Climbing party at Diablo Rock Gym with Pizza from Extreme Pizza! These two businesses donated this great prize and we can't wait to share it with our students. We also have an extra incentive for each individual classroom. Every class with 100% participation will receive a pizza party during lunch. Pizza for the class parties will be donated by our local Round Table Pizza Clubhouse on Treat Blvd and we are so grateful! 

2) The American Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course: 

We have a fun American Ninja Warrior style obstacle course planned for Thursday during recess for the students. We are making sure this is both safe AND fun, and should really pump the kids up as they roll into Thanksgiving Break. We ask that you send your student in clothes they can move  and run around in. If you would like to help staff the obstacle course, we are still looking for a few parent volunteers. Please contact Lila Samady or Katie Reed on Konstella, email us at readathon@walnutacrespfc.net or stop one of us on campus. 

Thank you for supporting your student in this fundraiser. We are looking forward to an action packed week... ready, set, READ!
