The Ocean Air Readathon, Oct. 14-18, is a week-long, school-wide program that encourages children to read more – the kids get very engaged individually and as a class, grade and school! This is also our most important PTA fundraiser of the year! 100% of the proceeds will be used for the children’s educational programs and resources at Ocean Air. Please help us reach our goal of $40,000!
Please help the school by donating at least $125 per student so we can reach our goal! Encourage friends and family to help as much as possible to meet our goal by going to this link: http://pledgestar.com/oceanairreads/and donating to their LOVE of Reading!
Below is a schedule of the fun activities we have planned for the students throughout this week. Remember to have your students turn in your book orders for the guest author we have scheduled on Monday, October 14. The checks can be made out to the author, Henry Herz, and turned into the teacher or PTA box in the front office. The order forms were sent in the Wednesday folder this week, but you can get another copy at the front office. You can also order books directly from his website, www.henryherz.com.
The students will also have guest readers in their classrooms as well as mystery readers to guess twice a day over the loudspeaker…
Please help us make this an amazing experience to support Ocean Air and our kids’ love for reading!
