Dear Sligo Creek Families-
Grab a book, find a comfy spot and start reading!!! Sligo Creek ES will be participating in the second annual school wide Read-a-Thon. The event will run from Oct. 29th – Nov. 11th (in correlation with the school book fair). Students will keep track of the minutes read on the recording sheet. The students can collect pledges in advance based on minutes read, or flat pledges. We will have prizes for top readers and top fundraisers. Prizes include:
· Anyone who reads 500 minutes or more will be entered into a drawing for a free Kindle.
· Anyone who raises $60 or more will be entered into a drawing for a free Kindle.
· The top reader for each grade will win an Amazon gift card of $20
· Everyone who participates will be eligible to receive an extra book check out from the media center courtesy of Ms. Elkins!
This event is a great way to have a blast reading this Fall and for K-5 graders to earn money for the Sligo Creek Education Foundation! This year the SCEF will be supporting the Outdoor Classroom Coordinator position, the newspaper club, and a 2nd Grade Girls Stem Club, with the funds raised! We are also exploring the option of funding a shade cover for the playground. For more information about what we do, please go to: http://sligocreekef.webs.com/about-us.
Note: Read-A-Thon documents went out last week in the Friday folder. The documents in English, Spanish and French are also attached. Donations may also be made directly to the Sligo Creek Education Foundation at http://sligocreekef.webs.com/fundraising. Please provide a comment in the note section that the funds are for the Read-a-Thon and identify the grade/s of your child/children.
Thank you and have fun reading!!!
