Read-a-Thon Pledges Still Being Accepted!

Pledges for the recently concluded Read-A-Thon are coming in fast and furious!  An orange paper was sent home with updates and information on how to participate if you wish.

Our read-a-thon has ended!  Students spent 2 weeks reading a bunch in school.  Many of your children even logged some additional time at home.

Some highlights:

  • Students were entered in a drawing for random prizes provided by the PTO if they were using their log sheet/bingo board
  • Students will be receiving a prize from the PTO for participation once all log sheet/bingo boards are tallied
  • Kindergarten students worked with Mrs. Sproul to enjoy the read-a-thon.
  • Grand prizes will be awarded based on the following: Most $ raised; Most pages read; Most minutes logged.
  • If you submitted labels for us to mail letters to family and friends, the letters were sent out and have been trickling back in with donations.  Due to mail service, it is never too late to send these back in.

Pledges received by Tuesday, April 6 will be counted toward the top fund raiser prize. Any donation is gladly accepted.

Thank you for your support!

What can I do to prepare for Kindergarten??

Parents often inquire if their child is ready for kindergarten. It is hard to offer advice without knowing your child. This document was created to offer guidance and support for what kindergarten teachers around the county are looking for as great entrance skills for children entering kindergarten. Please take a peek and use this as a handbook for your child’s journey. If you have other questions, you can reach out to any member of our school team. Thank you.
