The Chinook Trail Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is kicking off our 7th Annual READING OLYMPICS! We’re excited to continue this academic sport aimed at putting the spotlight on Exercising the Mind. Please note one important change to the program this year – it will NOT be a fundraiser! The program will be focused on getting students back to reading for the school year. Stay tuned for our NEW fall fundraiser – the FUN RUN next month!
Students will read as much as they can during the two-week period from Monday, August 27th to Thursday, September 6th.
We encourage all students to read and log their minutes to help reach the school goal of 150,000 minutes. With our growing school we should be able to do this if everyone reads 20 minutes per day. We hope that every student will participate and not only grow as a student, but also feel the unity that a shared goal brings.
Both students and staff can wear their favorite sports or spirit wear on Monday, August 27th to kick off the Chinook Trail Reading Olympics Read-a-thon and enjoy the Reading Olympics Opening Assembly!
We will enthusiastically accept help with the Reading Olympics. If you are interested in counting minutes, organizing prizes or helping in any way, or have any questions regarding the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support of the program. Sincerely,
