Let's Raise Readers
We're excited to announce the following activities this February to promote and enhance reading among West Scholars.
In celebration of Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, our scholars will Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) 25,125 in unison Monday, February 25th- Friday March 1st.
Our goal for 2019 is to raise $1500 during this reading pledge drive.
• $500 - will purchase electronic books (e-books)
• $1000 - will purchase iPods for book QR Codes, small group instruction, live-translations, and coding
• $1500 - will purchase books & book jacket covers to maintain protective covering
We look forward to your support!
Please spread the word to family, friends, and neighbors. Pledges of any amount are welcome and may be made online by February 28th), or returned in the envelope provided to your scholar.
