Get Involved PTA Family Nights Annual Fund Readathon Supporting Students At Home


The 4th annual Read-a-thon will kick off Monday, April 24. All fundraising proceeds go directly back to Rockdale to support its unique arts programs. Children learn to read from the ages of 3-6 years, then they read to learn. Parents, families and friends have an opportunity to become partners and help them develop good reading habits and a love for books. Donations to the Read-a-thon will also ensure support for programs such as Focus Fish, LA Opera, the Garden School Foundation, and much more. 


This year we are using the help of the outside company Read-A-Thon.com where each teacher/classroom and student has their own web page ready to be personalized. A printed flyer will go out with all students on the 24th with their own secret code to access their page. They can personalize it, set their reading sessions and send a link to outside family and friends for sponsors. For identity protection, only their first and last initial has been used. 


Check out the school's page:  https://www.read-a-thon.com/school/Rockdale-Elementary_16665


Prizes - for every page personalized the student automatically gets a prize and for every donation / sponsor each student gets 15% to spend on prizes. The more you collect, the more they will have to spend. For prize details click here: https://www.read-a-thon.com/sample-store/


You can still pay by cash, check (payable to "Rockdale PTA"), or by credit card by clicking on the "Donate" button at the right side of this page. The money will be added to the student's total. Please note the child's name.


The official reading times are from May 1 through to May 14 giving each student an extra week to bring on those sponsorships.


Happy reading everyone and thank you!
