Echo Lake Read-A-Thon Coming Up!

The Echo Lake Read-a-thon will kick off soon! The Read-a-Thon is an opportunity for students to read while raising funds for PTA sponsored programs at Echo Lake. Students challenge themselves to see how many minutes they can read in 20 days, and then collect pledges in support of their efforts while earning prizes.

Money raised will go to support school programs and events such as movie night, teacher grants, classroom enrichment programs, field trips, and other opportunities our kids might not have without the extra funds raised by the PTA.

Look for info coming home with your student. You can start soliciting pledges anytime and you can begin counting your minutes September 27th. The Read-a-Thon ends October 16th with an All School Read-In for the last 45 minutes of the day. This year students will be awarded raffle tickets for completing tasks and earning achievements. The winners of the raffle will be announced a week after the Read-a-thon ends. Students have the chance to win a Kindle, gift cards to bookstores, and much more.
