Once Upon A Read-A-Thon
A School Fundraiser
When: November 5th - November 19th
EES PTO is excited to announce our first Read-A-Thon fundraiser! We want to help our students enhance their love of reading, and this fundraiser not only supports our school but each student’s personal reading development goal. This fundraiser will also support our classroom libraries. Please help us reach our fundraising goal by supporting our Read-A-Thon. We have teamed up with Get Movin’© to make this event fun and profitable with online mobile friendly technology!
How It Works
Make a pledge to encourage reading and raise money for our school. Our Read-A-Thon will be based on school-wide reading sessions outside of the school day. Students will read or be read to according to their own personal goal set by their teacher. The Read-A-Thon is set for 14 days.
Every day beginning Friday, November 5th through Friday, November 19th students will earn money by reading or being read to (for younger readers). Students will receive pledges from family and friends to support their efforts.
