Get Ready for the 2017 Read-a-Thon
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 7:30 AM

The 2017 Read-a-Thon is approaching! Help begin the journey… attend the opening ceremony on Tuesday, January 31 at 9:30 am in the Burroughs gym. The fifth graders will perform a skit to reveal the Read-a-Thon theme and to present the principal's challenge.

The Read-a-Thon begins February 1, and all students will keep track of their reading throughout the month.

Funds raised during the Read-a-Thon contribute to a majority of the PTA's annual budget. In addition to fundraising, 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 information after the opening ceremony on Tuesday!
