The Keys To Learning
Monday, January 11, 2016
Arcado’s BookFit Bowl kicked off on Wednesday, January 6th. The BookFit Bowl is challenging students to read a certain amount each day and to get pledges to help Arcado raise funds for classroom libraries. You can participate by registering your student on FunRun.com using the code 735-737. Once your student(s) gets registered they will receive a free gift the next day at school. Thank you for your support!
INFORMATION ON THE BOOKFIT BOWL
With the BookFit Bowl, there is no selling or delivering products, and it reinforces the value of learning and leadership. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of “Learning Laps” your student correctly completes throughout the Bookfit Bowl program.
To make our fundraising significantly easier, more profitable, and more fun, we’ve asked the experts at Boosterthon to power the entire 9-day program. Boosterthon has been organizing Fun Runs for 13 years and is partnering with 1,600 other schools across America this year. They are officially launching a learning-focused fundraiser called the BookFit Bowl that is all the fun of their Fun Run program combined with reading.
A FOCUS ON READING HABITS
The BookFit Bowl supports our ongoing reading focus at Arcado Elementary with a month long emphasis on reading for our students! We will focus on reading daily for the fun of it!
Students are challenged to use daily reading times to build a habit and a love of learning. Students will be challenged to understand that studying any subject in school builds great character. Reading is always connected from one learning opportunity to the next!
EVERY STUDENT INCLUDED
Regardless of financial participation, every student is invited to participate in the entire BookFit Bowl program. Students will also receive a FREE gift just by being registered on funrun.com. Every student at our school will be challenged to read every day to help build the habit of reading and the love of learning. You can join in at home with them!
PLEDGE BOOKS AND INFORMATION WAS SENT HOME WITH STUDENTS ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6.
THE BOOKFIT BOWL RUNS THROUGH FRIDAY, JANUARY 15.

The public forum will begin at 5:30 in the board of the Instructional Support Center.
