The 2020 Read-A-Thon is here!

What is Read-A-Thon? It’s a twelve day reading marathon for all PPE families. This year we’re Imagining our Story and leaning into all things fairy tales…castles, dragons, knights, and magical characters. Look for the Imagine Your Story Challenge, Reading Log, and a “FAQ Information Sheet” in this week’s Friday folders. Students have the opportunity to earn small fairy tale themed prizes throughout the twelve days by completing the challenges on the Imagine Your Story Challenge. Thank-you for helping your child(ren) track and log their minutes read on the Reading Log. We’re encouraging students to read more than 40 minutes a day. YES, listening to reading counts as reading. Important dates are listed below and more information is available on the FAQ Information Sheet.
