2019 Read-A-Thon!

Our annual fundraiser, Read-A-Thon, started yesterday! The official reading days are from February 19-March 4. SES students received all of their information packets and bookmarks on February 19.

We have lots of amazing prizes for top fundraisers and top readers, plus TONS of exciting activities planned for the students. Here is the list:

  • Tuesday, February 19: Read-A-Thon kick-off
    Author and illustrator Vera Brosgol presented to students in grades 1-8, answered questions and signed their books.
  • Friday, February 22: Pajama Read-in Event
    Wear pajamas to school and spend recess reading in the auditorium. 
  • Monday, March 4: FINAL READING DAY, and the wildly popular dress like a book character day.

We’ll also have ongoing events and reading prizes throughout Read-A-Thon, including: House Cup, Got Caught Reading and Locker Library.

A very important reminder: We measure reading for this event in UNITS, NOT MINUTES.

  • Grades K-2: 10 minutes of reading = 1 unit
  • Grades 3-8: 20 minutes of reading = 1 unit

Please feel free to contact me with questions at leslielothamer@gmail.com.

Let’s get reading! Cheers,
Leslie Lothamer
