The WFES Read-a-thon is in full swing. Until March 8, 2019, the WFES PTA will be holding a Read-A-Thon to raise money for the PTA’s support of our school, and to make reading fun in a new way! Your child brought home a sheet that details how you can create their online page to track their reading progress, and to collect donations to support this important fundraiser.
Kids who read for 200 minutes during our Read-a-thon will earn a ticket in a prize raffle, and they can earn an additional ticket for every extra 50 minutes read! (Reading includes all time spent with a book or magazine, whether your child is being read to, or is reading independently.)
Every child who raises $25 during our Read-A-Thon will also earn a raffle ticket, with an additional ticket being earned for each additional $25 dollars raised. Our prizes so far include:
* Amazon Kindle Fire for Kids
* Kid’s Fitbit
* $50.00 Barnes and Noble gift card
* Yogi Castle gift card
* Launch Trampoline Park passes
* Shadowland passes
* Stratosphere passes
* Pottery Stop gift card
* Goldfish swim school gift card
The grade that reads the most minutes will earn extra recess at the end of our Read-A-Thon, and the top readers and fundraisers in each class will earn a pizza party!
We hope you’ll help support this event; sharing your child’s unique link with family and friends will help our PTA raise the money it needs to continue hosting the events our kids love, and to continue supporting our wonderful teachers and staff.
