OUR PTO IS INTERESTED IN SPONSORING A READ-A-THON WHERE STUDENTS WOULD GET PLEDGES FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR TIME READ. WE HAD A MOM SUGGEST THIS AT OUR YEARLY STRATEGY MEETING THIS LAST SUMMER AND SHE SAID THAT HER PREVIOUS SCHOOL HAD DONE THIS AND THEY MADE ENOUGH MONEY TO USE THIS AS THEIR MAIN FUNDRAISER. UNFORTUNATELY SHE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE TO GET ANY SPECIFICS FOR HOW TO PULL THIS OFF. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS OR SUGGESTIONS? THANKS, LORI

Our School is getting ready to do a Read-a-Thon. I have a pledge sheet along with a log for the students to keep track of their time that I could email to you. I haven't written the explanation letter yet but once I get that done I could email that to you also.

I have a great program called 2-4-6. Each student reads for 2 weeks (15min/day) they find 4 sponsers to pay them $1 for each hour...which would total 6 hours over the 2 week time. so 2-4-6.
Just think of the amount you could raise if 300 students participate.
$24 x 300= $7,200.
I got this from Discovery Toys. I am a ed. consultant with DT and could give you more info if wanted on how this is done. I have fliers already made and everything.
