Dear Family and Friends,

I love to Read! Reading makes me happy.It takes me places in my mind that are amazing and opens up the world to me. Reading cheers me up when I am down and is a big part of how I learn. Reading has played a big part in overcoming my learning challenges too. 

Well, this year I have a pretty big goal to read 600 minutes(that is a lot of books). I can do it! I am raising money for my school. Your generous donations make it possible for me to have a more enriching educational experience and help find our technology programs. Will you be willing to help? Any amount, no matter how small is very helpful. Please help me meet my goal..if you can. I am counting on you. Thank you for your support!

Love, Charity

The 5th annual Read-A-Thon continues our tradition at Thomas Edison Elementary School of emphasizing the joy of reading, growing as readers,  and helping support our school programs. Although this event is a fund raising activity, our true goal is to inspire students to become life-long readers.

 Edison Elementary is proud to be an Advanced Technology Magnet and Spanish FLAG School. We are also a Title 1 school. Read-A-Thon is organized by parent volunteers with the Thomas Edison Elementary Foundation (TEEF). Students can create their own fundraising pages by clicking on the "Fundraise" button above.  Parents:  you can help set up the page, just be sure to type in the student's name on the Sign-Up page so that donations get credited to the student.  You may use the email address of your choice to track your student's progress.  You can also create a team for your teacher if you do not see one already. 

 

Students who participate and raise funds will be eligible to receive prizes.
