READ-A-THON INFORMATION

READ-A-THON

This is going to be amazingly fun!

Date: Friday, April 14,2017

Time: 9:30 1:00pm

Bonus: We will have a “kick off” for this event with the winners of

the storytelling contest performing for us! This will be in

the gym from 9:00am 9:30am.

Things to know and share with students:

1. Pledge forms with envelopes were delivered this week. Students are encouraged to collect pledges during spring break and the week of the read a thon. Flyer has been sent to you in a previous email. Please put this on your classroom blog.

2. There will be fun activities and incentives the kids can pay $1 to do during the read a thon. The morning of the read-a-thon, beginning at 8:00am, we will have a booth set up in the commons area. Please see attached information with the various items offered.

3. A snack cart will come around during the day for grades 1st-3rd. For grades 4th-6th, we will have two snack shacks set up one in the commons and another in the south hallway. Make sure students know that they can purchase popcorn, candy, pop, water, cotton candy, cupcakes, etc. throughout the day. Bring your own cash! A list of the exact items that will be for sale will be coming soon! No nachos or hot dogs will be sold. Students also can bring their own treats if they would like.

4. Students can use an e-reader if wanted.

5. Camp Read S’More will be located in the library. This is a lovely place for the kids to get away from the noisiness of the day and come enjoy a little nature while reading a good book. Students can sign up for this before school the morning of the read a thon and can coordinate a time slot with their friends. The cost will be $1/person. Times will be assigned that morning. The kids need to bring a book with them.

6. Parents/grandparents are welcome to come to school that day to read with their child. Post on your blog the times you would like them to come. Use your room parent to help organize if you would like.

7. Throughout the day, we have arranged for student government, parent volunteers, and administration to come to your classrooms and read a story to the kiddos. We also have a very special visitor coming to the school, so keep your eye out for him!!

8. Those classes with reading buddies might want to arrange to read together. This is a great way to help the young ones break up that day. Both students can count the pages they read with each other.

9. Recesses and lunches will be on the regular schedule.

10. I will be sending you a tracking sheet to use if you want to. Its just a way for the kids to track their pages they have read. However, if you dont find them useful, then you definitely dont have to use them. Just make sure each child knows how many pages they read before they leave for school on Friday, so they know what to collect.

11. Wristbands: Each child that purchases some activity/activities will be given a wristband with the coordinating activities written on the band. The time slot for Camp Read SMore will also be written on the band.

12. Questions??? Email Jacque Jeppsen at jjeppsen@hmcharterschool.org…..or you all know where to find me!
