Spring Pictures + Read-A-Thon

Spring Photos

This Wednesday, March 14th are our Spring Pictures.  A photo packet was sent home with your student a little while ago.  Let me know if you didn’t get it and I can send home another one! We will be taking a class photo, and if you would like, individual photos.  Whether you are doing individual photos or not, your student will be in our class photo, so please have them looking their best on Wednesday morning.  Payment will be due on Wednesday so please send your photo packet back to school before or on that day.  Online payments are also accepted.  Instructions on how to pay online should be on your photo packet.

Read A Thon

Our Annual Read-A-Thon will be this Friday, March 16th.   Here is some more information about the Read-A-Thon.

What is a read-a-thon?

Our read-a-thon is similar to a walk-a-thon. Students collect pledges per page read during the read-a-thon. The more they read, the more money they raise.

How do I collect pledges?

Ask parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors that you know if they would like to support your efforts to read to earn money for your school. Have them fill out your pledge sheet. DO NOT collect pledges from someone you or your parents do not know. It is not safe and is in no way encouraged by this school or PTSO.

Are there any rewards or incentives for collecting pledges?

We believe the greatest reward is supporting your PTSO and the many activities they provide, but a little added incentive never hurt anyone! The student from each grade who collects the most pledges will receive a prize. Also, the class with the most pledges collected the TEACHER gets a prize.

Do I pay now?

NO. Money will be collected after the read-a-thon ends. After the Read-a-Thon ends, take your completed pledge sheet to those that made pledges. Collect the money based off how many pages you read x how much they pledged. Put the money in the envelope provided. Bring the envelope back to school and turn into your teacher no later than March 23, 2018.

What will the money be used for?

HighMark is always in need of funds for buses, playground, sports and electronic equipment, school activities, etc. All funds will be at the discretion of the PTSO.

Are the contributions made for the Read-A-Thon tax deductible?

Yes! As a registered non-profit, all read-a-thon pledges are tax-deductible, as are all PTSO contributions. Receipts will be made available upon request.

What other activities/incentives will there be on the day of the Read-A-Thon?

We believe reading should be fun! The morning of the read-a-thon, students can purchase various incentives and activities to do while they are reading, i.e. wear your slippers, bring a blanket, read with a friend, spend time in Camp Read S’More, etc. All activities will be $1. There will be a treat cart coming around to the classrooms where students can purchase snacks to enjoy while they read.  Snacks will be around $1 (plus or minus)
