Horizon Read-a-paMOOOza Fundraiser!
The read-a-thon will be this year’s primary Horizon PTO‘s fundraiser. We hope to raise enough money to sponsor an all-school family literacy project and provide teachers with grants for educational items they can use in their classrooms. Last year we raised over $16,000 and were able to purchase new library furniture that can be easily cleaned, funded a Reflex Math fact fluency program for all students, sponsored a financial literacy trip for all 5th graders, purchased books for the library, and much more!
Pledge Collection Dates: Week of September 28 to week of October 19
We have set both reading and fundraising goals for this year’s event. If both goals are met, Mrs. Cornwell will KISS A PIG!!!! (Since we can’t do a school assembly for this, Mrs. Cornwell will go to a farm and we’ll record it so you can watch it over and over and over again!)
Check with your employer to see if they match gifts given to accredited public schools and fill out the appropriate documentation to have your pledge matched. Students who include a corporate match form to our Parent Teacher Organization or proof a match was submitted will receive credit toward fundraising total. Find the list here.
- This is a flat donation fundraiser. We will not be doing pledges “per minutes read”, etc.
- Help give your children ownership of this fundraiser. Make sure they know that the money raised is used to enhance their school experience. Encourage them to trade chores for donations, make a craft, phone a grandparent, and ALWAYS say thank you!!
- Remember to check with your employer to see if they participate in a corporate match program. Many companies will match donations 1:1!! We have a list of some companies who have participated in the past. Click on this link to check it out: Charitable Match Programs
