Boosterthon Book-Fit Reading Challenge!
The Book-Fit challenge starts Monday May 4th! We are raising funds to create a more student-centered media center that will include flexible seating, a new circulation desk (for student self check-out), integrated computer stations and a flexible research room with mobile technology and fun seating for students. The Book-Fit Challenge is similar to the Fun Runs we've had in the past except students are encouraged to get pledges for reading instead of running! During this 10-day challenge students will be encouraged to get pledges for each "lap" they read. Each "lap" is counted when students read for a set amount of time in one sitting (i.e. 10 minutes for PK-2 students and 15 minutes for 3-5 students). Over the course of the 10 days Book-Fit Challenge students will read between 25 and 35 "laps" (35 is the maximum that is counted). Our school goal is to raise $25,000 - if we reach this goal, we will be celebrating in a BIG way on Friday, May 15th, with a special, spectacular and sticky surprise your students won't want to miss!
