2019 Read-A-Thon


EVERYONE at Northside is a reader! Join our school community as we explore the world through reading and help support the PTA in all that we do to enhance the learning of EVERY navigator. You can get involved in three simple steps:

  1. FIND SPONSORS. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, baby sitters, family friends, co-workers, your neighborhood mail carrier…anyone! Using the form that you brought home, simply ask each partner to pledge a certain amount of money for every 10 minutes you read. They can also make a one-time donation if they wish. And since we’re high-tech, they can also make online donations HERE.
  2. READ, READ, READ. And then read some more. Log all your reading minutes between Friday, February 1st and Sunday February 10th. You can log your minutes anywhere you read: at school, at home, on the bus, at your baby sister’s birthday party…anywhere! Keep track of your minutes on the paper reading log you brought home, or log your minutes HERE.
  3. COLLECT DONATIONS. Beginning Friday, February 8th your total reading minutes will be sent home with you and you can start collecting donations from the kind folks who pledge to sponsor you. Place your pledge sheet in your manila envelope and turn it in to your teacher no later than February 15th.

Check back here in the coming week for more details and additional fun ways you can get involved!
