We are excited to host our annual Read-A-Thon. Our main goal for this fundraiser is to encourage the students at Riggs Elementary to read! We hope to encourage this by having the students set reading goals and collect pledges for their effort. If every student could earn $25 in pledges, we would be off to a great start in our fundraising efforts for the 2016-2017 school year. This is our 2nd largest fundraiser of the year. 100% of the net proceeds from Read-A-Thon benefits our students.
Read-A-Thon helps to fund programs like the accelerated reading program, teacher grants, Art Masterpiece, field trips and much more. With your help we can make this Read-A-Thon a huge success! Thank you for your participation!
How it works…
Students set a reading goal (# of minutes). They ask family and friends to pledge either a flat amount or a per minute amount. Remember to check with parentís employers…they might match contributions! Students read and keep track of their minutes on the Reading Log/Pledge Form. When the reading period is done, they turn in the Reading Log/Pledge form and any cash or check donations in the attached envelope to their teacher. Funds can also be donated online, but donít forget to still turn in your Reading Log!
