Dear William Penn Parents,

This year the William Penn PTO will be having our 4th READ-A-THON fundraiser. This fundraiser is always a huge success for our school. Not only does the READ-A-THON provide 100% of the money collected to our children, but will also promote our children’s love for reading.

Here is how it works:

  • Each child is provided a packet with directions, sponsor sheet and reading log.
  • Each child should ask people to sponsor them by pledging to pay for each book read or for each 20 minutes of reading completed each day.
  • For two weeks (March 15 – March 29, 2015) children should read, read, read.
  • Parents should initial each time the student has recorded a book or time.
  • Children should collect their money from their sponsors.
  • Money should be returned to school by no later than April 1, 2015.
  • At the end of the READ A THON the class with the highest amount raised in K-1 and 2 will get a popcorn party and $25.00 gift card to a bookstore for their class. The class with the highest amount raised in 3rd and 4th grade will also receive a popcorn party and $25.00 gift card to a bookstore for their class.

Directions For Students
