Ross Glen Read-a-thon

What: Ross Glen Read-a-Thon 2020-2021

When: April 26th was the kick off to our School Council Read-a-Thon. This challenge lasts 3 weeks and will end on May 14th.

How: Students will work towards crossing off squares on their BINGO cards. The cards were loaded onto their Google Classroom. Families can pledge their children through School Cash Online. This activity was created to be flexible. Students can choose which BINGO card they work to complete, or they can challenge themselves to complete both. Parents or other family members can choose how to pledge the students. You can pledge per square, per row, or per blackout.

If your donation is $50 or more, and you would like a tax receipt, please bring the money or a cheque into the school to request a receipt. Central Office will process the paperwork and provide a receipt.

Why: Money raised will be used for various activities for students.
