Aileen Colburn Read-a-thon 2019

Dear Aileen Colburn Parents and Students:

This year we will be participating in a Read-a-Thon during Read Across America Week!  We need your help to raise money for books, reading incentives, and other Language Arts materials.  You can help us by sponsoring your child and by helping your child collect sponsorships from family and friends.  Read-a-thon collections will begin February 18th  and end on February 28th.  Our Read-a-Thon event will take place on  Friday, March 1 in your child’s class.  Students will read in their classroom and special guests will be on campus as well to read to students.  

As a reward for their hard work, your student will earn prizes for money turned in by February 28th.  Prizes will only be distributed for actual money collected and turned in.
