February is national "I Love to Read" month and we celebrate with our annual Read-a-thon. The theme this year is "Escape with Reading".
Money raised during the month of February will support our students with new books, creative classroom seating options and other enrichment materials.
Randolph Heights readers as a united group have read 123,457 minutes! We are well on our way to reaching 150,000 minutes this month. If we can reach our goal, Randy promises a special surprise for the whole school. What do you think it could be? We had 212 students participate this week. Once again, the first graders had the most readers with 47 participants this week. So far 254 students have turned in at least one week of minutes. Can we get to 300 this week?
The Read-a-thon tracks minutes read, not the number of books. This allows students with different reading speeds to compete on a level playing field for recognition and prizes. Each student is encouraged to set and reach a personal reading goal.
We'll be entering minutes weekly. The link will be updated on Sundays.
Please enter the minutes your child read from Wednesday, February 20 to Sunday, February 26 into this form (click on circle to the right). Please complete one form for each child who is participating. The form will no longer accept submissions as of 9:00 am on Wednesday, March 1.

It's free, easy, safe and fast to register!
(And if you previously registered in Get Movin for the Dragon Dash in the fall, most of your information is saved, so it's super fast to register for the Read-a-thon.)
Set a daily reading goal. Use the calendar in the Read-a-thon packet to log the number of minutes spent reading each day.
On each Sunday, watch for an email with a link to the Google Form to enter your total minutes for the previous week. The link will also be available here and on our RHSPTA Facebook page.
Ask family members and friends to support your reading goals with a financial donation.
We prefer online donations through your child(ren)'s web page. Cash and checks should be turned into the school office. Checks payable to Randolph Heights PTA.
Please turn in your pledge donations by Monday, March 11.
