Hello Sunnyside families! Our annual fundraiser, Read-A-Thon, is almost here! We have so many exciting activities planned for the students. Gillian, our wonderful librarian, Leslie Lothamer, other INCREDIBLE parent volunteers and I simply cannot wait to get started. The students will get all of their information packets and bookmarks on February 26. Official reading dates are February 26 through March 11. We plan to have character days at school, the very popular house cup, got caught reading activities and raffles. And this year we will also have a comic book exchange during kickoff on February 26.

Starting immediately, we will have boxes in the library for age appropriate (ages 5-15) comic book and graphic novel donations. We have already asked a few local comic book shops, but if you have any connections to any shops in town, please send me an email. (We would love more donations, but I would like to make sure it is not a shop that is already sponsoring us.)

If you would like to volunteer, please call me at 305-528-7105 or email me at yomaricruz@yahoo.com. We can always use more hands to make displays, decorate the halls and count money.

Cannot wait for all the fun!

With Gratitude,
Yomari Cruz-DeWeese
