Our gnome-friend Reade visited all of our classrooms yesterday to kick off our annual Read-a-Thon fundraiser. The Read-a-Thon is a fundraiser for our school library and summer reading books. It works through sponsors; this year, sponsors will give money based on how many minutes a child reads (or is read to) each day. Your child will bring home a booklet to list sponsors and log all those minutes.
After a quick speech from Reade, students met with their partners (Lower Elementary with Middle School, and Primary with Upper Elementary) to spend some time reading together. Pictured above are the Lower Elementary/Middle School partners.
McGuffey’s Read-a-Thon goal for this year is to read for a collective 1,440 minutes, or one full day!
