Read, Tally, Repeat!
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 9:15 AM

The 2018 Read-a-Thon is flying by faster than Peter Pan racing off to Neverland! Burroughs students should be well on their way to tallying up those 2 million minutes because we all want to see Ms. Bartl dressed up as Captain Hook! You can help Burroughs students get more classroom minutes by signing up to be a guest reader in your child's classroom.
A special thanks goes out to Ms. Frederickson for hosting Camp Read-Away last week in the Media Center. Students had fun reading in tents, using flashlights to read the Media Center's new Shine-a-Light books, and posing as Amazing Grace herself! If you missed a chance to snap a picture of your child in Grace's Peter Pan photo op, look for the display in the school atrium during the remainder of the Read-a-Thon.
Please note the following important Read-a-Thon dates:
  • February 1-28: Read, read, read and track your minutes!
  • March 2: Read-a-Thon pledges and tally forms due
  • March 23: Closing Ceremony, 9:30 am in the gym
  • March 27-29: Read-a-Thon celebration parties
