Woodholme Updates

Read-A-Thon Prize Selection

We are excited to announce that today, December 15th marks the tenth day of Woodholme’s Read-A-Thon. Woodholme students read for 300 minutes over the last ten school days. Way to go! Thank you very much to the many families who are helping to raise money for our classroom libraries and reading resources. Even though our Read-A-Thon ends today, the Read-A-Thon website will remain open for ten additional days for any last minute donations and most importantly, for students who have earned RAT bucks, to purchase prizes. To select prizes with RAT bucks, simply log into your child’s Read-A-Thon page and select the prize center. All prizes must be selected before December 26th. On December 26th, the Read-A-Thon site for our school will be closed. Prizes will be delivered to Woodholme in January and sent home with your child. If you have questions, please contact the Read-A-Thon Team at WoodholmeReads@gmail.com.
