Read-A-Thon: Raise Money for VOE and Earn Prizes!

UPDATE:

Due to school closures and the aftermath of the winter storm, ReadAThon is being moved to March 22 – April 2. An information sheet and reading log will be sent home on Monday, March 22. The pledge form is still open and pledges will continue to be accepted through April 2nd. https://digitalpto.wufoo.com/forms/w5m7har0qzu541/

 If you have any questions, please contact Brie Bash, brie.bash@gmail.com.

Read-A-Thon is an exciting new fundraiser to raise money for VOE! It will also encourage our kids to read more with awesome prizes! 100% of the money raised goes to the Valley Oaks PTA, which pays for two teachers’ salaries, improved technology, and much more. 

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW? Starting right now, you can collect Read-A-Thon pledges from grandparents, family, & neighbors. Use this link to enter your pledge and share it with friends & family. The more you raise, the more you can win! https://digitalpto.wufoo.com/forms/w5m7har0qzu541/

WHEN DOES IT START: On Monday, February 22nd, your students will start reading & recording their minutes until Friday March 5th. You’ll get an official reading log to keep track of how many minutes they read each day. Reading logs are due at school by Monday, March 8th with a parent signature. 

RULES:

  1. Students are asked to complete 10 reading sessions between Monday, February 22nd and Friday, March 5th.
  2. Reading sessions can be done before or after school, or on the weekend. Classroom reading is not included.
  3. Pre-K and Kinder can also count minutes when a parent is reading to them. 
  4. Parents must sign the form at the end of theRead-a-thon. 
  5. Be Honest. No guessing or rounding off minutes. Please look at the clock or use a timer to clock your exact time.  
  6. Prizes will be awarded to each student by the amount of minutes read or the amount of money raised (whichever is higher). 

*All Prizes are cumulative. For Example: If your student reads 524 minutes, he/she would receive all 5 prizes listed up to the 500-599 category.
