Goal: $12,000

Help spread the word

About this fundraiser:

Starting Thursday, January 16th, Rheem students will participate in our annual literacy program, the Rheem Read-a-thon. This year's theme is "Minds at Work".

For our students, the goal of the Read-a-thon is 100% reading participation, and the emphasis is on reading for fun! The program will run from January 16th - February 13th. This program also raises money for our school, helping to fund PTA enrichment programs such as Classroom Books and Resources, School-wide Technology and the Laird Drive Capital Improvement Project. The money comes from sponsors who pledge support to a reader.

This year we will be using to solicit and track sponsorships. Please share it with family and friends,
and please have all sponsorships submitted by Friday, January 31, 2020. Pledges can be made by the hour, or as a fixed donation.

How much do we raise? Last year our Rheem Roadrunners raised more than $10,000 for our school, and we hope to top that this year with a goal of $12,000! To meet that goal, we are hoping for a minimum donation of $30 per student reader, although any amount is GREATLY appreciated!

How do you donate? Donations/sponsors can be made through this website, or if you prefer, Checks made out to Rheem PTA and turned into your child(s) classroom.
