Read-a-thon 2016!



“Mission Possible”


Dear Parents of Fairburn Read-a-thon Agents,


            Your child will be participating in Operation Read-a-thon, “Mission Possible.”


What is the Read-a-thon?

            The Read-a-thon is a program to promote literacy and create good reading habits that will last a lifetime.  It is also a time to help our school to promote unity and community spirit.  Their “Mission” is to read 30 minutes each night for the month of February.


How does my child participate in the Read-a-thon?

            The reading is part of your child’s curriculum and every child is asked to participate.  Your child will read and log his/her minutes read each day.  (This includes the time they are read to by a parent).


What makes it special and fun?

            A Grade Level PJ Day for the students at Fairburn School, and “Turn Off TV Tuesday” for agents (students) that hand in their permission slip on time.


How will my child be rewarded?

            The obvious reward it to develop a lifetime habit and joy of reading.  Each student who meets his/her goal will receive a book. (pending donations)


When is the Read-a-thon?

            The reading begins Monday, February 1, 2016 and lasts for 4 weeks, ending on March 1st.  March 4th will be a special day to celebrate the “father” of the “I Can Read” series, Dr. Seuss.  (His birthday is March 2nd)
