PTO Read-a-thon Information
Read-a-thon, our newest fundraiser kicks off February 26. We are piloting this program right now to work out any kinks because this will be replacing Boosterthon in the fall. With this program we KEEP 80% of what we raise vs. the 55% with Boosterthon. In addition there are no processing fees with your donation AND we are offering fun school wide and class wide incentives instead of prizes. We are super excited about this program and hope you will partner with us to make it a success.
Jerry Pallotta, author of over fifty books, is coming to GHES on Thursday, March 22 to talk to your students about writing, researching, and publishing books. Mrs. Prince will be sharing more details about the day of the visit soon.
Students have the opportunity to purchase signed copies of Mr. Pallotta's books the day of the event, but they can also preorder books that will be delivered to them the day of the event. Preorders will also be signed. See the email attachment for preorder form.
If you have any questions, please ask Mrs. Prince or email Nicole Ayers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
