2018 Read-a-Thon Kicks Off January 31
Tuesday, January 23, 2018 9:00 AM

The 2018 Read-a-Thon is approaching and it will be AMAZING!  Join us for the opening ceremony on Wednesday, January 31 at 9:30 am in the Burroughs gymnasium.  The fifth graders will enact a skit to reveal both the Read-a-Thon theme and this year's principal's challenge.
 
The Read-A-Thon begins February 1 and runs through February 28.  On January 31, packets will be sent home with your child.  This packet includes a tally form, prize sheet, and more detailed information about the Read-a-Thon.  
 
Funds raised during the Read-a-Thon contribute to a majority of the PTA's annual budget.  Equally important, the Read-a-Thon gets students more excited about reading and helps sharpen their reading skills while providing an added element of fun.
 
Look for more Read-a-Thon information and happenings in each week's Bulletin.
