Crocker Farm Summer 2017 Read-a-Thon

Published on June 15, 2017 by Farah Ameen School News

Dear Families,

Would you like to participate in a program to encourage your child to keep reading over the summer, while raising money for Crocker Farm? The Crocker Farm Summer Read-a-Thon is the answer!

Here’s how it works:
 Help your child set a summer reading goal—a number of books to read over the summer.

 Next, help your child find sponsors that will pledge an amount of money per each book read (25¢, 50¢,$1, $2, $5 and so on). No pledge is too small or too large. Parents and guardians can of course sponsor their own children and also pool together to sponsor a grade at smaller amounts such as 5¢ or 10¢ per book. If you are unable to find sponsors, PGO Chair Hallie Hughes and volunteer Amanda Robertson can help when your child returns the materials in the fall.

 Encourage your child to read over the summer and help him/her keep track of books read by entering the titles in the reading log. Plus, all books read to your child also count!

 Children can participate in the Jones Library and/or Munson Library Summer Reading Programs, and other reading programs as well—just fill out all of the book forms at the same time.

 At the end of the summer, help your child collect the pledges from the sponsors.

 In the beginning of the school year, you will receive information as to how to return the money and reading logs to the PGO.

In our last Read-a-Thon in 2015, over 100 participants raised $3,000-plus for our school! This year, funds raised by the PGO will directly benefit students in the form of much-needed classroom materials, general school supplies, snacks, teacher stipends and more.

Have a happy summer full of great books! If you have any questions, please contact Hallie (413-575-4422) or Amanda (413-539- 8857). Thank you for your support!
