2017-18 READ-A-THON

The 15th Annual READ-A-THON – “Exercise Your Mind and READ” – helps to raise money for Jackson Elementary, while encouraging and rewarding students for reading. Students will gather sponsorship for their reading efforts and read (or have someone read to them) as many age appropriate books as possible during Read-a-Thon. All money raised will go towards supporting academic programs for our students, including STEM and Media. Thank you in advance for your support of Warren T. Jackson!

Support Read-a-thon

Before the start of the Read-a-thon, your child will bring home their Read-a-Thon folder. It contains all the details to SECURE SPONSORS and LOG MINUTES READ from Monday, November 6th – Friday, November 17th.  During the event, students will keep track of the amount of time they spend reading in 5 minute increments. Reading logs will be provided in students’ Read-A-Thon folders. Students will be given additional opportunities to read independently and collectively while at school. Students are also encouraged to read at home and collect pledges.

During this 12-day (11/6/17 – 11/17/17) event your child has the opportunity to earn great prizes and raise money towards our school. Remind your child(children) to bring their folder home nightly and take to school daily to record their minutes read.
