In conjunction with our next Book Fair, March 4-6, Ms. Cocking and Ms. Caspar have invited all students to participate in a Read-a-thon. Students who wish to participate will ask friends and family to pledge them and then commit to reading (or being read to) at least 20 minutes a day for two weeks (Feb 9-22).
They will bring all money to school on Monday, Feb 25th and be given a certificate for 50% of their pledge money, as will their classroom teacher, to spend at the Book Fair. The more money spent at the Fair, the more books Scholastic gives to the library, as well. It’s a win/win/win situation!
All necessary paperwork (reading calendar, instructions etc.) will be sent home next week. Students who don’t wish to get pledges are encouraged to participate in the reading part and be entered in the many prize draws.
