BMSA Roaring Rocket Read-A-Thon is here!
Last Friday, your student should have brought home the Roaring Rocket Read-A-Thon packet with information about the event, prize details, reading requirements, and a donation pledge form. It can also be found here, click or copy and paste into your web browser: https://tinyurl.com/y64zzen5
Students begin selecting the books they are excited to read. They ask family and friends for pledges (a donation amount per minute the student reads or a fixed amount donation).
Read, read, read! Students log their reading minutes and turn in the reading logs DAILY. Students can read by themselves, on an educational app, or with a 'helper' (family/friend reading with them).
*Parents, please initial the reading logs daily.
Every student who participates and turns in their log sheet daily will visit the PRIZE PATROL for a daily reading prize.
At the end of the Read-A-Thon, based on pledges submitted by January 5th, two students from every grade level will receive a $15 BMSA Gift Certificate to purchase books through Scholastic. The students will be selected based on the most minutes read and the student that raised the most money for our school.
December 20- January 3:
Students collect pledge money. Pledge donations may be made by check to BMSA PTO or by scanning the Venmo QR code on the pledge form.
