Greetings Family and Friends. I hope you had a great start to the school year.

Each year we host the Read-a-Thon. This event is a fun way to encourage students to read and raise much needed funds for our school! The students receive monetary pledges from family and friends for each minute or book read. We also receive donations from businesses. At the end of the event, there is a raffle for prizes and a popcorn party for the entire school. Our students and families make the event a huge success – last year over $5,000 was raised for our school!!

This year the Read-a-Thon will take place October 8 – 12, 2012.

Of course, I could use your help! There are many ways to help such as soliciting donations, coordinating packets, accounting of donations, popping popcorn, etc. Please contact me via e-mail/phone if you would like to help with the event. Also, if you are aware of a business that would be willing to donate prizes or sponsor a classroom through a cash donation, please let me know.

I know your time is valuable and I appreciate your consideration. Go READ-A-THON!!

Thank you very much.
