Readathon starts Feb 17-Mar 17th! Spring Into Reading Read-a-thon Feb 17-Mar 17
Rockwood Centennial is excited to announce that our students will be participating in a Spring Into Reading Read-a-thon. Students will be reading to raise money for classroom and library books, and a data projector for our gymnasium. During the week of February 13th, students will be bringing home their pledge sheets.The Read-a-thon will run from February 17th (through March break), to March 17th, 2023. Students are expected to set a goal of how many books they’d like to read and get pledges from family, friends and neighbours to support their goal. Sponsors are asked to choose a set amount to pledge to support the student’s goal. Please have your child use the Tally Sheet provided to track their reading progress. All pledge sheets and money are due on March 21st, 2023. Parents will be responsible for submitting a lump sum payment on School Cash Online for the full amount of the pledges received. You will only be able to make one lump sum to the Read-a-thon through the link provided. It will not work multiple times for additional payments. Forms will be going out on Wednesday!
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 classes that raise the most funds:
1st: Pizza & Movie Party 2nd: Movie & Popcorn Party 3rd: Extra Gym Period
Select the various dollar values to accumulate the balance you wish to pledge. Please DOUBLE CHECK to ensure that the correct amount has accumulated. Please make one payment online for the entire total amount of your child’s pledges.
Thank you for your support! Please also see the Family Literacy Day activity which includes a chance to win Guelph Storm game tickets at the end of the newsletter!
