Ready-Steady-Read! Read-a-Thon Shopping Day and Open House
October 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
To encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and at Oak Learners, we will be running a read-a-thon between October 5 – October 15! Students have this time to
read and collect pledges. 50% of the money earned will go to the school to purchase new books for the Oak Learners library and your child can spend their 50% on new books to take home and keep!
Prizes will be given to the student that collects the most pledges, and the student with the most reading minutes.
Please help us to enhance our reading resources for students by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read anything with words (for example books, comics, recipes, magazines, etc.) for as long or as little as they like.
Should you wish to support our read-a-thon, please download a sponsorship form for your child and a reading log to record the minutes they have spent reading.
Please return the reading logs and all of the sponsorship money that your child raises to Oak Learners by Monday, October 15.
On Saturday October 20 from 1-3 pm, Nicole McCloud will come in and set up a “store” for the students to shop from and spend their hard earned pledge funds. Any left over change from your child’s purchase will be given to the school to spend on books.
