Readathon & Fundraising

The PTA is excited to introduce an optional fundraising component to the Readathon! The fundraising component is designed to be easy and fun, so we are hoping that everyone will participate! Here is how it works — Your children will secure pledges from friends and family during 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. All donations are 100% tax-deductible. After obtaining pledges your children will set a “minimum goal” for themselves and begin reading. Minutes are counted, instead of books, in order to make this fair for readers at every level.

Use your Sponsorship Form to keep track of your sponsors and how much they have pledged to donate. At the end of Readathon, tally up their minutes, collect their pledge money from the sponsors and bring collected money to school by Tuesday, May 28th. Pledges can also be made on our website. Prizes will be awarded to the top three fundraisers. 

We hope you will encourage your child to participate in Readathon and HAVE FUN READING!
