It's Read-A-Thon Time!

After much ado, we are pleased to announce the theme for the 2021 Read-A-Thon: Choose Your Own Adventure!

Please read directions for this year's Read-A-Thon:

Over the next three weeks, we invite every student to choose THEIR own adventure. Explore new worlds, new characters, new genres... The sky's the limit!

Although the Read-A-Thon looks different this year, the expectation remains that each student will read at least 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Any reading that happens during school time should be counted toward their daily minutes. Please encourage your child(ren) to only enter the TOTAL number of minutes per day onto the Read-A-Thon website. You will find your Reading Team info there, too!

Team assignments are on the homepage, broken down by cluster. Siblings were placed on the same team. Contact the RAT committee at openschoolreadathonatgmail.com immediately if your children are NOT on the same team.

The latest we will accept minutes for each week is Sunday (2/7, 2/14, 2/21) at 10am. At that point, we will deactivate the Google Form for that week and replace it with a form for week two and week three respectively. Team winners will be announced at assembly the following day (except for Monday, February 15th, which is a holiday).
 
The website has a comprehensive FAQ section we encourage everyone to read. There is an explanation of how incentives will work for both the Read-A-Thon and the Read-A-Thon Fundraiser, how students can attain Junior Super Reader and Super Reader status, plus a bevy of other information.

Please check out the fantastic Read-A-Thon video we showed to the students this morning at assembly where we revealed the theme. And if you missed Ms. Pam's presentation today at the 1pm redo Zoom, you can find it here.

Lastly, please keep reaching out to your communities for our Fundraiser! Register here if you haven't already. The Fundraiser will continue throughout the entire Read-A-Thon, with chances to win raffle prizes every week day! We are well on our way to meeting our fundraising goal of $40,000!

Thank you to the entire Open School community for your support!
