Third annual Read-A-Thon kicks off in November!
We have 3 goals this year:
1) Participation: 100% of our students will read over our 17-day Winter Break.
2) Fundraising: Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 for more literacy supplies. The most beloved books get loved to death and need replacing. Some books are lost or destroyed. New great books are published every year. If each of our 580 students raised $20 each, we can fulfill our goal of robust books at Edison.
3) Class Goals: Every class will set a community goal of minutes pledged to read.
Thank you for encouraging your Edison Eagle family or friend to build a life-long love of reading!
If you have pledged a flat amount, you can pay at any time.
If you have pledged by the minute, the Read-A-Thon Committee will contact you in early January.
Please enter your student's name in the "Company" line for our records.
