Read-A-Thon

WALNUT ACRES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

2021 READ-A-THON FUNDRAISER!

NOVEMBER 15th - 29th, 2021

What is the Read-A-Thon?

The Read-A-Thon is a fundraiser that challenges students to use their most important academic skill, READING, to directly support our school. The money raised goes to sustain our PFC-funded initiatives such as grade-level aides, reading and math specialists, science aides, art awareness and vocal music.

How does the Read-A-Thon work?

      • Students set a reading goal (hours or minutes/day) for the 15-day reading period, Monday November 15th - Monday, November 29th.

    • Students solicit sponsors to support their goal via online fundraising or cash/check.

      • Students and parents record pledges on the Read-A-Thon envelope and log minutes read on the back on the envelope (2nd through 5th graders may include minutes reading to a younger sibling, and TK through 1st graders may include minutes they are read to by older sibling, parent, etc.)

      • Parents drop off their student’s Read-A-Thon envelope with pledges enclosed at the school TBD.

How do I collect donations?

1.) Donate online via 99pledges.com. You will receive an email from 99pledges.com containing a link to your child’s personal fundraising page. Our school's main fundraising page will be shared when the event kicks off.

2) Collect donations in person. All cash/checks should be turned in together with your child’s Read-A-Thon envelope. Checks should be made payable to Walnut Acres PFC with your child’s name in the memo line.

HOW DO I EARN PRIZES?

      • Most Minutes Read (top reader from each class).

    • Money Raised (top fundraiser from each grade).
