Get Ready to Read-A-Thon

It’s nearly time for the annual Hazel Wolf Read-A-Thon! Our goal this year is to increase student participation (last year we only had 18 percent of our students participate). Need help asking for pledges? Encourage your kids go see Ms. Fournier in the library, as there are a few local businesses who want to sponsor kids, and a lot of teachers do, too! We’re excited to expand this great community event that is designed to inspire the love of reading—and directly benefit our students by raising funds for the PTSA.

The reading period starts November 13 (which is also Literacy Night!) and goes through November 25 (the last day of Thanksgiving break). Packets are going home in Kidmail this week with all the details. You can also find the packet for download and more information on the PTSA website.

Happy reading, everyone!

Key Dates:

  • November 9 – Start collecting sponsor pledges/donations
  • November 13 – Start reading
  • November 25 – Last day of Read-A-Thon
  • November 30 – Students turn in their official minute recording sheets
