Annual CDM Read-a-Thon October 18-22nd, 2021
Get your books on, Dragons!
What is the Read-A-Thon?
The Read-A-Thon is a week-long, school-wide program that encourages children to read more. It is also our only PTA fundraiser this year! 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund educational materials and programs at Carmel Del Mar. This means it supports all students at our school. Please help us reach our goal of $25,000!
What do you need to do to participate? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Set up your student’s Carmel Del Mar Read-A-Thon fundraising page!
Go to: https://pledgestar.com/cdmpta/
- Ask your friends and family to sponsor your student’s commitment & participation to reading a realistic number of minutes each day. We are hoping each family will raise at least $100. Please share your student â€™s fundraising efforts via Facebook, Twitter, text and email directly from your fundraising page.
- Have your student track his/her reading. Start a timer at the start of reading and record the minutes on their online Read-A-Thon reading log, found on your child’s Pledgestar page (which can be found next to the student name in the â€œenter readersâ€ tab on Pledgestar). To qualify for daily drawings for prizes, the reading log must be filled out each night by 7pm as the reading happens.
