Read-a-thon Success

Riverside Library Read-a-thon

Students read over 1700 books and raised over $2,200 for our library in 2013!

This year we asked students to participate in a school-wide “Read-a-thon”, which is a program that we hoped would bring students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills.

The “Read-a-thon” promised to be an exciting journey for all participants as they read and work for prizes.  Participants read on their own, or with family and friends.  Students in grades K-2 had the option to either read books themselves or have someone read to them.  Students in grades 3-5 did count every 25 pages as “one book” due to the fact that they read more difficult chapter books.

What are the prizes did students earn?

*4th place winners – Those who read at least 10 books and collected at least $15 receive a bookmark and a lollipop.  They are Lauren B, Evan P, Evee F, Brooklyn D, Finneus A, Caleb L, Riley S, Maria S, McKenna H, Lilyan M, Marissa P, Maryjane H, Josh H, Erin H, Vanessa K, Brenna L, Carrie W, Sonja B, George J, Ashton A, Elaina K, Nathan P, Ella S, and Derek P.
