2018 FRES Read-A-Thon

Every year, we build excitment about reading with our Read-A-Thon fundraiser. This event allows us to provide free book vouchers for students to shop our November Book Fair and to fund a variety of great events all year long.  Most of all it encourages students to develop a lifelong love of reading! This year’s Read-A-Thon takes place from October 11 through October 28. 

Students in grades 1-5 should have brought home instructions for creating a Read-A-Thon tracking and fundraising page on Read-A-Thon.com. Paper trackers and donation logs will be sent home on Monday, if you prefer to participate off-line.

Prizes! Prizes! And more Prizes!

If our FRES students meet the School Goal of reading 50,000 minutes or more during the Read-A-Thon, Mr. O has volunteered to KISS A FROG. Keep your eyes out for our Frog-O-Meter tracking our progress throughout the event!

Individual classes and students will be receive prizes for logging the most reading minutes. Read-A-Thon.com provides prizes for fundraising achievements, which will be delivered at the end of the event. Simply set up your online Read-A-Thon page to earn your first reward!
