Last Day to Read!
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 8:00 AM

Last day to read!  Congratulations to all students for their hard work in this reading journey.  Did they read 2,000,000 minutes?  It is time to get down to the business of finding out! 
Every student should take these steps between now and March 3:
  1. After February 28, tally all the minutes read from Feb 1-28. 
  2. Once your classroom teacher communicates the in-class minutes earned, add this number in the space provided on the tally sheet and total the student’s minutes read for the month. Parents must sign the tally sheets.
  3. Collect all pledge money that is not collected via GiveMN.org. Please collect separate checks for each student in your family.
  4. Using the envelope provided in the Read-a-Thon packet, collect the signed tally form, the pledge form, and all pledge money collected. Turn this into the student’s classroom teacher by Friday, March 3. If a student has outstanding pledges that cannot be collected by March 3, funds can be turned in after that date at the Burroughs office. Late funds will be applied to the student's tally, if possible.
Every student must turn in a tally sheet even if they did not fundraise. 100% participation in reading is required for a class to participate in the Overboard Ice Cream party in March.

See the Burroughs website for all Read-a-Thon information.

Important Read-a-Thon dates:

February 1-28: Read!
