Reading Olympics – Send online link to your sponsor

Reading-Olympics  1

I hope you are all enjoying reading with your kids or watching them read independently for the 2017 READING OLYMPICS!

Sometimes getting sponsors is the hardest part. Consider sending emails to family and friends or posting in Facebook. Maybe have your child make a video about the books they are reading and explain how sponsors can donate $1 per book or hour of reading. Here is the link you can give to anyone who would like to sponsor your child. The money will go straight to the PA and your child will get credit for the donation.

Two weeks to go!

Happy reading,
The Reading Olympics Team

Reading Olympics and Book Sale

Reading-Olympics  1

The 2017 Reading Olympics is here! Please look in your child’s backpack this Friday for sponsor sheets and information. The envelope included is to collect donations. We are encouraging all students to read and log books throughout the month of March (literacy awareness month) and to collect donations from sponsors for the books they read. But remember, all students who read books and hand in a reading log, whether or not donations are collected, will get a prize for their wonderful efforts!

To kick off the Reading Olympics, there will be a BOOK SALE in the yard THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY MORNING.
Please donate your gently used books appropriate for preK through 5th grade students on those days. Books are $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcover. We look forward to seeing you there πŸ™‚

Kind regards,
The Reading Olympics Team
