Read-A-Thon Fundraiser

The LSK PTO sponsored a Read-A-Thon for our students. We had Storybook Character Dress-up Day on January 22nd and the teachers performed a Reader's Theater for their students. The reading time frame was from February 1st through February 15th. Our school goal for minutes read was 90,000 minutes. Our students read a documented 105,463 minutes! We raised $10,156.00, which will be used to install an awning over the area behind the gym to protect staff and students from the weather during play and pick-up time. Many, many thanks to our awesome students, staff, and PTO for all the hard work that has gone into this project!
