Read-a-thon

If you give a mouse a cookie or if you give a child a book....



If you give a mouse a cookie or if you give a child a book... Students get so excited about reading each year during our school-wide Read-A-Thon - parents and teachers are welcomed to participate too!  We kick-off our Read-A-Thon with a Milk & Cookies party where students have a chance to read a book (or be read to) with a delicious cookie and glass of milk. Students set goals for the number of minutes they plan to read over the 3-week course of the Read-A-Thon. They can also collect pledges (e.g. 5 cents per minute read) from their parents, neighbors, aunts/uncles to match each minute read with a donation to the school PTU. At the end of the Read-A-Thon, minutes are tallied and prizes go out to individual students and the class that read the most.  The students in the winning classroom get to pick out new books!
