Read-a-Thon runs through March 29

Our Read-a-Thon is in full swing and will run through March 29. Students have raised a total of $1910.00 for our school, so far! Kamea and Lilly are tied for first place with $235 each, George is in 2nd place with $195 and Evangelyn T. is in third place with $120. Ms. Shepherd's class is in first place, Mrs. Darsey's in second, and Ms. Faunda's class is in third. Keep reading, we have two more weeks to go! This is a great opportunity for students to grow as readers, develop a love of reading, and be rewarded for their efforts. We encourage all students to participate. Please follow the link below to sign up and add your child's picture to their page. This can be shared on your Facebook page with friends and family. Students are reading independently at school at least 40 minutes daily and are encouraged to read at home. The student with the highest amount of donations will win a bicycle. There will also be incentives such as a pizza party and ice cream party for classes with high participation.
