The Patrick Henry PTA is sponsoring the Annual Read-A-Thon. Through the Read-A-Thon students are not only encouraged to fundraise but also to read as much as possible and enjoy a variety of books.colby-hp2

Reading Period Begins: November 7, 2016
Reading Period Ends: November 18, 2016
Fundraising Ends: November 30, 2016

The 2016 Read-A-Thon will kick off on Monday, November 7, 2016, with a school-wide “Bulldogs Love to Read” classroom reading event and end on November 18, 2016, with a school-wide “Celebrate Reading” classroom reading event. During the Read-A-Thon, students will ask friends and family to support their reading with online donations.

This year we are using the website to improve PTA administration and better accommodate online donations. While fundraising is strongly encouraged, students do not have to fundraise to participate in the Read-A-Thon. Every student that participates will receive a prize and students who fundraise will be able to select their own fundraising prizes through an online store.

Mrs. Turner and Ms. Snyder will continue to challenge Patrick Henry students to reach a school-wide total number of minutes read. In return for reaching this goal, they’ll reward students with a special school-wide celebration!

The official reading period is November 7-18, 2016. All donations must be received and fundraising prizes selected by November 30, 2016.

Detailed information will be sent home with students during the Read-A-Thon and posted on the PTA website.
