Masked Readers... UNITE! Let’s unite as readers with our annual Read-a-Thon sponsored by the Randolph Heights PTA. We'll keep updating this page with the latest Read Aloud videos and other fun things, so check back here often!
We smashed our goal of 100,000 minutes less than two weeks into our Read-a-Thon. As a school we read over 194,581 minutes. To celebrate our incredible success, students will be allowed to wear pajamas to school on Thursday, April 1. This is no April Fool’s Joke but please remember pajamas must be school appropriate and no slippers are allowed.
With our Read-a-Thon coming to an end, it’s also time to collect money from family/friends who made pledges. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Any checks should be made out to “Randolph Heights PTA”.
WAY TO GO, READERS!
Ms. Tierney, Ms. Dochniack and Ms. Nelson
Students are encouraged (but not required) to collect pledges and donations as they reach their reading goals. If you would like to make a donation to our RHS Read-a-Thon, you can also do so here.
If you would like to mark your donation to a specific student, please include their name and grade with your donation.
Enjoy these Read Aloud videos submitted by members of our RHS and SPPS community!
