1 Dear Lakewood Families, Lakewood Elementary School s Read-a-Thon Fundraiser This year, the Lakewood PTA is excited to introduce a new fundraiser Read-a-thon Event! In keeping with our Scholastic Book Fair Medieval Theme, Sir-Read-A-Lot s Castle, we are pleased to introduce our. SIR-READ-A-LOT-A-THON!! This exciting fundraiser will not only encourage a love of reading, but at the same time provide a fun & easy way for our students to help raise for their school (without having to sell anything). The best part of our Read-A-Thon is that 100% of the collected will be used to benefit our School and our children! But the PTA cannot make this Event a success without the excitement, support & participation of every Lakewood family. We need your help! In this packet, we have included everything your child will need to participate: - Our official Read-a-thon Rules; - A Sponsorship Form (to record pledges); - Minute Recording Sheet (for students to complete & parents to initia); and - A list of incentives & prizes to be won. We will be kicking off our Read-A-Thon on Tuesday, October 7 th with a special assembly for the entire school. On Wednesday, October 8 th, your child should begin securing pledges from family and friends. Each sponsor will have the option to pledge a certain amount of for every minute your child reads, or pledge a flat fee to support the student, regardless of how many minutes he/she reads. s, please assist your child in soliciting pledges. Friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers often make the best sponsors. After obtaining pledges, your child should set a "reading goal" for himself/herself. We decided to count minutes of reading (instead of books or pages) in order to be fair to all levels of readers. Please go over the Official Rules with your child so that he/she knows which reading minutes count, and which ones do not. The official reading period for the event begins on Monday, October 20 th, and goes through November 7 th. Every day during the Period, your child should record how many minutes he/she has read (using the attached Minute Recording Sheet). At the end of each day, your child will ask you to verify his/her reading time for that day. Please do so by signing your initials next to your child's recorded time. It is essential that you verify your child s recording sheet, since sheets turned in without verification will NOT count towards the child s total reading minutes. During the official reading period, encourage your child to read as much as possible, and remind them that prizes will be awarded to individual students and classes for most minutes read and the most raised. Throughout the period, students can bring their Recording sheets to Mrs. McCaffrey in the Media Center to receive incentive prizes. After the Official Period ends, your child will tally up the minutes read, collect their pledge from their sponsors, and turn in the collected to school NO LATER THAN Friday, November 14. Please ensure that your child turns in his/her Sponsorship Form & Minute Recording Sheet along with the collected. Please place all forms, cash & checks in a sealed envelope, and mark it with your child s name, grade & teacher. The sealed envelope should be turned in to your child s homeroom teacher. Please note that forms and collected after November 14 th will be accepted, but will not be counted towards the individual and class prizes. We thank you in advance for your support! Sonia Juneja, Stacey Hammer, & Carla McCaffrey (Read-a-thon co-chairs)
