West Portal Elementary School
November 8 - 26, 2012
How does it work?
Students record in a log the number of minutes they read or are read to during the Read-A-Thon period. Parents, friends, family and corporations make pledges that directly support West Portal school programs. We encourage all students to read, read, read, even if they don’t collect pledges. Print your reading logs and pledge sheets through this link.
All students, even those too young to read, parents, grandparents, older siblings, and friends can read to small children and record the pages for them.
What kinds of materials count?
Students can read anything: novels, textbooks, journals, magazine articles, newspapers. Our goal is to get everyone reading!
Read-A-Thon fosters positive reading habits, promotes literacy and financially supports our school’s vital enrichment programs such as the library, the outdoor science classroom, music and P.E. instruction.
A Party will be awarded to the class at each grade level that reads the most minutes and that raises the most money for the school! The student who raises the most money and the student who reads the most minutes win a $50 Gift Certificate to Book Shop West Portal!
Special events? Literacy Night, Friday, November 9, 6:00 pm
At this event, families get to learn and play together as they try to solve puzzles, play reading games, and hear stories read aloud. Light dinner will be available
We all win by encouraging our children to read, read, and read!
