Terrace Park PTA 2022 Read-a-Thon Fundraiser


Reading period was: Monday, March 7th - Friday, March 18th

Our goals:
  1. Encourage literacy
  2. Raise funds for our PTA to use for school-wide events and support classroom grants to teachers. More details below. 
The Basics:
  • Students log individual minutes read from March 7th to March 18th. Individual reading goals can overlap with class goals.
  • Classrooms set goals of completing Reading BINGO catagory squares  
  • Reading sponsor donations are collected
  • Prizes are distributed
What are we raising money for?
100% of proceeds will fund events and programs provided to Terrace Park students, families, and staff.  Your donations and support pays for Library & Classroom Books, Art and Music Supplies, our Literacy Program, Classroom Supplies, PE Equipment, Teacher Appreciation Activities, Future Math Nights and Much More!  

What Steps to Take:
  • Scroll to the donation button to support a reader and their school! An electronic donation can be done here anytime.
  • Fill out student name, grade and teacher (if known), to ensure they're entered for prize drawings!
  • If you challenged students to read more by pledging a per-minute donation to be calculated by the student at the conclusion of our event, connect with your reader ASAP for your total per-minute pledge due before 3/24.
  • Pledges can be paid to readers using cash or checks made payable to Terrace Park PTA, or use a credit card by clicking our Donate button.
  • Please let us know if your corporation will match donations made to a non-profit organization.

What Steps to Finish up:
Get Sponsors
  • Set goals for minutes to be read during the Read-a-Thon and number of classroom BINGO categories to complete. Share these goals with potential sponsors such as family, friends and neighbors! Sponsors can pledge a one-time donation, a per-minute donation, or on the number of BINGO squares completed. 
  • Track the sponsor pledges on your sponsor log. 

Read and Log Minutes!! from March 7th to 18th. 
  • Have an adult verify and initial daily reading log and final tally of total minutes read.
  • Mark one BINGO square per reading session. (A Non-Ficton book from the Library with a One Word Title  Read Aloud while Wearing your PJ's will count for one of those catagories per reading session. The time of a reading session will vary by grade and class. Verify with your teacher but should range 10-30mins.)

Turn in Reading Packet with the reading log, sponsor log, and all collected pledges by Friday, March 25th to be eligible for prizes!
  • Notify any sponsors who pledged a per-minute donation or per BINGO square donation of their amount due (minutes read x amount pledged per-minute = total donation amount).
