A project of ZACHARY LANE PTA
The Zachary Lane PTA is sponsoring the 1st Annual Read-A-Thon fundraiser to encourage students to read while earning money for ZLE.
Grades 3-5: 30 minutes per day! This will total 840/4weeks
The Zachary Lane PTA has a goal of earning at least $13,000 from this Read-a-thon to support school programs.
NEW FOR 2012:All forms and updates will be posted on ZLE website: www.zachary-lane-pta.zle.rdale.org
A maximum number of minutes (1.5 of grade level goal) will be accepted per student. Each student who reaches this SuperReader status on a weekly basis will have their name entered into a drawing to be a SuperStar for 1/2 day. Reading coupons must be turned in each week to be eligible.
There will be a Bullseye Club for students who are SuperReaders for all 4 weeks! .
All students who meet the reading goals will be invited to attend a sleepover/under at Zachary Lane’s Camp Read-A-Lot on February 25. There is also an option to stay for the festivities until 11 p.m. and then go home to sleep in your own bed (this is known as a sleep under)!
An adult must attend the sleepover/under with the student
Students will earn prizes for reading as well as raising money for ZLE.
Please remember to contact your employers for possible matching fund donations (100% of donations are tax-deductible).
Donations and pledges can be for each minute read or a lump-sum donation.
Each child is encouraged to collect donations, which are due Feb. 18.
Time reading in class DOES NOT count toward goal.
