What is the Read-a-Thon: A fundraiser without selling anything. Instead, we will promote our school’s goal of a love for reading.

Who: All Hazel Wolf K-8 students

How it works:

  • Your student will set a daily “minutes read” goal and ask people to sponsor them by pledging (for their reading goal or a flat donation). Relatives, neighbors, and friends make great sponsors! Here is a sample letter for you to personalize and send out.
  • Kids read, read, read (and record minutes) November 16 to 28. Students and classes will be winning great prizes for participation!
  • Your student will add up their minutes, collect any outstanding pledge money from the sponsors and bring their pledge sheets and collected money to school (or send via email and online donations). Also, sponsors can make their donations online at: https://hazelwolfk8.ejoinme.org/2020ReadAThon.
  • Donations and minute recording sheets received by December 3 will qualify for prizes.
  • Not a reader yet? That’s OK. Reading or being read to count too. Read to yourself, a parent, a friend, a sibling, a stuffed animal, or a pet. Get everyone in on the fun and get reading!

What we ask of parents:

  • Please initial your student’s recorded time each day.
  • Encourage your student to read, read, and read (and read to them).
  • Review the rules with your students so that he/she knows what kind of reading minutes count. (Homework reading counts! Reading during class time does not!)
  • Remind your kids to track their reading every day! Missed the first day? Don’t worry, it’s OK to start late!
