We are excited to announce that Nesbitt's Home & School is bringing back the annual Read -A-Thon. The, Let's Get Loonie and Read- A-Thon, is a fun way of bringing parents, teachers and students together. The purpose of the Read-A-Thon is to encourage students to develop good reading habits, and to help raise money for Nesbitt's Home & School events and projects.
Once again, we are having the Read-A-Thon in March. It will replace our chocolate fundraiser. We believe a Read-A-Thon better fits the mission and vision for the school. We are hoping that all Nesbitt families will help make it a great success.
This will be our seventh year for the Read-A-Thon. Each child will try to get a minimum of 10 sponsors and each sponsor will donate a loonie (or more). This money will be used to support the school with educational material, and support the many events Nesbitt's Home & School sponsors in order to enhance school life at Nesbitt.
The students will attend an opening ceremony in the gym to learn about the Read-A-Thon. This year's opening ceremony will be on Thursday, March 19th. Students will receive their packets of information that day. The Read-A-Thon will run from March 23rd and ends March 27th. Please read the information given to you to better understand what is required for your child to do.
We thank you in advance for supporting the Read-A-Thon. Your efforts will help raise a tremendous amount of money for Nesbitt School, in addition to getting the children excited about reading!
