No School Monday - March 10

Read a Thon

Tuesday is the last day to read for tickets! Turn all remaining raffle tickets in on Wednesday. Your student must read for 15 minutes to earn a ticket. An adult reading to a student for 15 minutes can also earn a ticket! It takes 12 tickets to earn a bronze medal, 20 tickets to earn a silver medal and 28 tickets to earn a gold medal.

This is also one of the biggest fundraisers for our paired schools. Please consider sponsoring your child's reading. Watch for an envelope coming home to collect sponsor money.
