Welcome Parents, Students and Friends to our Read-A-Thon!
This is our biggest fundraiser! All proceeds will go to our future author visits, reading nooks for students throughout the school, field trips, assemblies and so much more to keep our PTA programs going strong!
This year, we are excited to announce that we will hold a Read-A-Thon fundraiser. Our Read-A-Thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills.
The main focus of the Read-A-Thon is for everyone to know we are committed to improving reading skills. To that end, the Read-A-Thon promises to be a fun, exciting journey for all participants as they begin a personal Reading Adventure that challenges each reader to complete 10 reading sessions over our 2-week event.
Our Read-A-Thon will start March 2, 2020.
PLEASE DO NOT ENTER ANY READING MINUTES UNTIL MARCH 2, 2020.
You will know that we have distributed the take home sheet because we will also place a green Read-A-Thon bracelet around your child’s wrist as a reminder. We understand that, as parents, you have high expectations for the quality of your child’s education but also have limited time.
That’s why we chose to hold a Read-A-Thon.
You will find this to be the easiest fundraiser possible. By simply activating your reader’s personal page and using the promotional tools found there, friends and family anywhere in the world can show their support for your reader by making a donation to our Read-A-Thon. Donations can be made using paypal, cash, check (made payable to EC PTA) or through the Read-A-Thon’s website.
Your involvement in the Read-A-Thon will help your child develop a lasting love of reading.
We hope each one of you will activate your child’s personal page the day your child brings home their paperwork.
