KGA will be running its first annual Read-a-thon this September and October. 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.
