Kids will set Read-a-thon reading goals at school during library. Students will then read over Winter Break and return Reading Logs the week of January 7 in order to be eligible for raffle prizes (entries based on number of minutes read). Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Literacy Supplies for Edison (independent reading books, guided reading books, curriculum materials, and digital literacy materials)
