Summer Read-a-thon, Due MONDAY 6/8

ABC Best Books for Children (cover)It’s time to sign up for the Summer Read-a-thon! Check your child’s backpack for the registration form. It’s due THIS Monday, June 8th. In the past, the Read-a-thon was designed as a fundraiser to raise money for the Wildwood Library. This year the district has provided funding for the libraries so we are not asking for pledges for the summer Read-a-thon. Instead, we are asking that you help us reach the Wildwood Million Minutes Reading Challenge!

Did you know… If every Wildwood student and their families read for 30 minutes/day for the 70 days of summer vacation that our community could read for over 1,000,000 minutes THIS SUMMER?! Help us meet the Wildwood Million Minutes Reading Challenge.

We want to reemphasize that money donations are NOT a part of the Read-a-thon this year; however, if parents are still interested in donating to the library to grow our collections, you can make a check payable to the Wildwood PGO and write “For Library” in the memo line. This money will be given directly to the library to purchase more books.
