Our read-a-thon is similar to a walk-a-thon. Students collect flat rate pledges. The entire school will participate in the Read-A-Thon on Friday morning, February 17, 2017.
How do I collect pledges? Ask parents, 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. DO NOT collect pledges from someone you or your parents do not know. It is not safe and is not encouraged by Aki Kurose or the PTSA.
Do I pay now? Yes. Pledges need to be paid in advance so students will know their prize eligibility.
How will the money be used? All funds will be deposited with the Aki Kurose PTSA. Money raised will be used to fund things such as teacher mini-grants to enhance learning in the classroom, team uniforms, etc.!
