The PTO is excited to announce our 2019 fundraiser, the
SUMNER ACADEMY READ-A-THON!
The READ-A-THON will begin August 19. Students will have until August 29 to read (outside of school hours), keep track of minutes read, and ask for support from friends and family in the form of pledges per ten minutes read, or flat donations. Any reading counts, not just books – magazines, articles, being read to by someone else - it all counts!
Any student collecting $20 or more in pledges will get a READ-A-THON t-shirt! Prizes will also be given at checkpoints throughout the reading period to the students in each class who have either the most minutes read or the most pledges collected! T-shirts are also available for purchase for any parents who would like one of their own! Please see the attached order form.
The READ-A-THON will culminate in an In-School Slumber Party on August 30. Students will be able to change into their pajamas at lunchtime, and we will have pizza, snacks, games, a movie and a photo booth for them to enjoy during the afternoon. It will be a fun event for the school community and a celebration of reading!
As you know, tuition only accounts for about 75% of the cost of educating our children. Every year, the PTO makes a financial gift to the school, in an effort to help close that gap.
This year the PTO is raising money towards the purchase of new Language Arts materials, including physical textbooks, electronic textbooks, and reading materials.
