IT’S TIME TO READ!!!
KGA’s first annual Read-a-thon begins this Saturday! Students should log their reading time until next Friday, September 26! Parents, please initial on the pledge form indicating how many minutes your student has read each day.
Our goal is to raise $10 per student which would raise over $5,000 for KGA. If we reach $10,000, Mrs. Weed will dress Over the Top for a Day!,
How it works…
9/12 – 9/17 – Students set Reading Goal and ask family and friends to sponsor them
9/20 – 9/26 – Students Read! Keep track of minutes on the Read-a-thon pledge form/Reading Log
Fall Break – Collect sponsor donations.
10/15 – 10/21 – Turn Pledge Envelope and Reading Log in to Teachers
10/22 – 10/24 – Winners Announced and Prize/Parties Awarded
It’s just that easy!!! **And because we are now a 501(c)3, your donations are tax-deductible**
1. Students can only read a book once for the event.
2. Students can read independently or other people can read to them. Reading aloud to other people counts. If a student reads to a friend or sibling, it counts for both!
3. Assigned reading for homework and book reports counts.
4. Max # of minutes per school day = 300 min. Max # of minutes weekend day = 600 min.
