One More Week to Read and Reach 2 Million Minutes!
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 10:00 AM

Burroughs students have one more week to track those reading minutes! After February 28, teachers will send home information on how many in-class minutes were read. Students can add that number to their tally sheets and total their minutes for the month. Students should then collect their pledges before the March 2 deadline. Families with multiple students should collect pledge payments separately so each student's packet contains only their pledge money.

A special thank you goes out to all the parents and community leaders who have shared their time by reading in the classrooms. That time spent will translate into PTA funding for important school enrichment and improved literacy. If you haven't had a chance to read, there is still time! Sign up here

  • Mar 2: Read-a-Thon pledges and tally forms due
  • Mar 23: Closing Ceremony, 9:30 am in the gym
