Ready, Set... READ! The Beall PTA DRAGON READATHON returns for three weeks, Friday, May 3 - Friday, May 24!

Each week, students track time spent reading outside of school on their reading log, have a parent initial each log entry, and return the log to school on Friday. Students can read independently or have a friend or family member read to them. Please note that audiobooks do not count toward Readathon totals.

As if reading weren't reward enough in itself, check out these great perks:

  • 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 60 minutes of reading, students will earn one raffle entry for the Readathon Grand Prize, a Kindle eREADER! 

Students and their parents are invited to join us for the PTA's Family Reading & Food Truck Night at Beall on Thursday, May 9th for dinner and to meet a fabulous guest author. Each student who attends can log one EXTRA hour of Readathon time.

New this year, we have layered on an optional fundraising component to Readathon! Should your child chose to participate, they can raise funds for the school while participating in Readathon. Each sponsor will pledge to pay for each minute your children read or are read to! The sponsor can choose any amount they wish, or choose to pay a flat fee for the total minutes read. When the reading period ends, your children will tally up their minutes, collect their pledge money from the sponsors, and bring collected money to school by Friday, May 24th. Additional prizes will be awarded to the top three students who raise the most money!

Please check your child's backpack mail for the Week 1 Readathon Log and Pledge Sheets.

Staff Appreciation Week 2019

May 6-10 is Staff Appreciation Week, when we get to spoil our Beall teachers and staff members for all their hard work! 

You will have a number of opportunities to get involved and really make this a very special week for our staff. This week your children will be bringing home a flyer with information about simple acts of kindness they can perform throughout the week to help our staff feel appreciated. Each day of the week brings something new!

Here is the list:

Monday - Bring in a flower to brighten up a staff member's day! Pick a flower from your garden, make it out of papter or buy one from the store!

Tuesday - Bring in an item from your teacher's classroom wish list (i.e. supplies, must haves)

Wednesday - Bring in a sweet treat for a staff member!

Thursday - Bring in a card (homemade or store bought) expressing how much you appreciate a staff member. This is sure to bring a smile to their faces!

Friday - Bring in a small gift for a staff member to show how much you care!


We also need your help, with 3 things:

1. Donate $10 Gift Cards from TARGET or AMAZON by Monday 5/6 (gift cards can be sent to school anytime between now and Monday May 6th. Please send them in an envelope clearly marked PTA/SAW and deliver them to Mrs. Gill in the front office or send them in your child's school folder). It's a nice treat for every staff member to get a little gift.

2. Sign up to donate food items for a delicious salad bar taking place on Wednesday 5/8

3. Sign up to donate drinks or desserts for a Staff Luncheon taking place on Friday 5/10

More information and the opportunity to sign up for specific items is here.
