Read-a-Thon: February 2020
River Grove Families,
We are excited to announce a new fundraiser this year! During the month of February, River Grove students will be participating in a Read-a-Thon. They will be encouraged to read as many minutes a day as they can at home and collect donations and pledges from their community to support them! There will be prizes for top readers and fundraisers.
We will also be hosting a Community/Family Fun Day on Monday, February 17th to celebrate our school and a love of reading. More details on this event will be sent out soon.
Packets with full details will be sent home this week with your students. They include more information on how the Read-a-Thon will work and also include the Tally Form and Donation Form that your students should fill out throughout the month of February. A copy of the info letter is also linked to this email for your convenience (click here).
For this fundraiser, we will be utilizing the site 99pledges.com to give students the ability to collect donations online. (Note that donations can still be collected via cash and check.) If you are interested in creating a donation page for your student, just follow the link below and enter your student’s name, an email address, and their team (teacher). The fundraising and reading goals are auto-populated, but if you would like them changed just send Katherine Hardie (email below) a note and they can be updated for you. You can also request an update through the 99pledges customer service.
They should start tracking their minutes this Saturday, February 1st. Completed forms and donations are due back to the school by March 6th.
Please reach out to Katherine Hardie, PTO Co-Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support of River Grove!
