2019 Highland Read-A-Thon

posted in: Husky Happenings | 0

Monday, January 7th through Friday, January 25th

New to the month of January, Highland Elementary will hold its third annual Read-A-Thon. During this three week event, our goal is to make more enthusiastic Husky readers while raising money for important PTO-sponsored activities and programs.

Like our Race for Education fundraiser in the past, students will use sponsorship forms to ask family and friends to donate a flat donation to support their reading efforts. All contributions are tax-deductible.

The PTO needs each Highland family to fill out and return 5 Read-A-Thon mailers (enclosed). The PTO will take care of postage and mailing the mailers. Please consider sponsoring your own children! Sponsorships can be made through PayPal at www.highlandpto.com.

This year, we are encouraging students to complete as many books as possible.  Once a student completes a book, they will complete a paw print (listing the name of the book as wekk as the student’s rating) that will be displayed in the school. 


  • Every family that completes all 5 sponsorship forms will be entered into a drawing to win 5 tickets to Hershey Park
  • The student from every grade with the most books read will win a $20 gift card to Barnes & Noble
  • The class that raises the most money will win a Pizza Party, plus extra recess
Friday, January 11th  
Return all mailers using the 9×12 envelope provided (flat, not folded).  

We are counting on your support!
