The Beall PTA DRAGON READATHON returns for three weeks, Friday, May 13th - Friday June 3rd (same day as our End of The Year Family Picnic)! Please check your child's backpack mail for this week's Readathon log. Each week, students log time spent reading outside of school, have a parent sign their reading log, and return the log to their teacher on Friday. Students can read independently or have a friend or family member read to them.
Weekly PRIZES will be awarded to the student in each grade who reads for the most minutes. The classroom in each grade that reads the most will win a PIZZA PARTY at the end of Readathon. For every 200 minutes of reading, students will earn one chance to win the Readathon Raffle Prize, a Kindle eREADER! Click here for our event flyer that you can use to encourage your Dragons to participate and spread the word!
Students and their parents are invited to join us for Beall's Food Truck and Family Reading Night on Thursday, May 19th, 5-8 PM for an opportunity to earn EXTRA reading minutes. To help us celebrate reading, we welcome guest reader/author, Shannon Jones, who will read to participants in the Beall Gym for Family Reading Night. Click here for more details about our special May 19th event, including how to pre-order a signed copy of Shannon Jones' book, That's Just Me! - the deadline for submitting pre-order forms is tomorrow, May 13th, so please get orders in by the end of the day (use this Order Form).
