Read A Thon Kickoff
Here’s how the Read-a-thon works:
1. Set a daily reading goal. Students set a reading goal and keep track of minutes spent reading outside of school from Friday, February 26 to Friday, March 9.
2. Secure Sponsors. Every student is encouraged to participate whether they raise money or not. But if you ask friends, family, and neighbors to support your avid reader, you can help the PTO fund activities for Whiteman Elementary. Sponsors can donate per minute read OR they can give a flat donation.
3. Track Reading Time. Students track how many minutes they read each day on their Reading Tracker online. Students can count books, magazines, newspaper articles, and homework reading done outside of school. Time others spend reading aloud to students counts, too!
4. Share your book ideas! Take a picture of your child reading or make a book suggestion and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will share with the Whiteman PTO and on our KN facebook page.
5. WIN AWESOME PRIZES! Every child who participates will get to participate in a Read-a-Thon fun day on March 23. If you sign your child up, your child will receive his or her first prize online.
This fundraiser is to encourage a love of reading and raise money at the same time!
