Beginning October 5th, your child will have the opportunity to participate in Parkside Montessori's first Fall Read-A-Thon. This is a 100% profit fundraiser, with monies raised going to benefit all students with activities such as sporting events, school fun days, and special presentations (MALT Days, Alberta Opera, Science in Motion, Author visits, etc.).
All Parkside Montessori students will receive a Read-A-Thon package that includes a sponsorship form for students to set a reading goal and collect sponsors for their efforts and a Reading Record for the designated dates of the Read-A-Thon, October 11th-14th. Please assist your child in setting their reading goal and collecting sponsors.
Our whole school goal is to raise $5000.00. Please remind students that for safety purposes they should not go door-to-door in their neighborhoods but should instead look to family and friends as sponsors. The sponsorship form needs to be returned to your child's teacher on or before, Wednesday October 12th, 2016.
The Read-A-Thon begins, Tuesday, October 11th 2016.
Each child needs to keep track of their home reading minute. All minutes read at home and school will count towards the student's individual reading goal.
