Students who have created their personal RAT page will start earning minutes TODAY! Remember that every child who creates a RAT page before WEDNESDAY gets $2 (TWO DOLLARS) to spend at the Wild West Book Fair AND they earn raffle tickets for every 100 minutes they read. If they don’t have a RAT page, they don’t get credit for reading!
If you have any trouble setting up the RAT page, please contact Kristina Brown.
Come dressed as your favorite book character tomorrow! We can’t wait to see all the creative costumes, but don’t forget to bring a copy of the book (or just a print out of the cover!) to share with the class.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date announcements and Read-a-Thon updates!
Participation Forms DUE Friday!

We encourage all students to participate in this fantastic event! While we have a screening day, there is no “audition” and no judging. *ALL APPROPRIATE ACTS WILL BE ALLOWED A MAXIMUM TIME OF ONE MINUTE AND 30 SECONDS.*
