Walnut Acres Elementary
FALL 2017 Read-A-Thon Fundraiser
November 13 – 30, 2017

"A Workout For Your Brain"

The theme of the 2017-2018 Read-A-Thon is American Ninja Reader - A workout for your brain! It kicks off Monday, November 13 and concludes on Thursday, November 30th. 

What is Read-A-Thon?

The Read-A-Thon is a school-wide fundraiser that challenges students to use one of their most important academic skills, READING, to support our school. It is a fun way to encourage your child's imagination, get them to dive into a good book, develop a healthy habit of daily reading (yes it's possible), and spark conversations on topics that interest them; all to proudly raise money directly for Walnut Acres Elementary.

A Few Details

-- We're using as our online donation tool again this year. You will receive your email with the link to your child's fundraising page Sunday, November 12. If you don't receive it, please contact the Read-A-Thon team.

-- The fundraiser runs through Thanksgiving break. This is a great chance to give your student time to relax, read...and collect sponsorships from friends and family. 

-- All donations and reading logs are due on Friday, 12/1. 

A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who have already donated their time and are helping to make this fundraiser a success!
