Unlock the Magical World of Reading

The highly anticipated Read-A-Thon (RAT) is here! Your student will be bringing home a sheet of paper with a unique login code. Please sign up as soon as possible - every student that opens a RAT account will receive a free prize!  

For the RAT, we are asking students to collect pledges for reading. The pledges are a flat amount (not per minute/page/book) for the 2 week reading period, ending Friday, October 27th. Every PLE classroom will Stop, Drop and Read each day, and please encourage your students to read at home too!  
 
Students will log reading sessions and donations online, and will receive RAT bucks to spend in the online store. Prizes will be given out after the RAT is over, and not in class. There will be no Apex Fun Run this year, and 90% of the RAT donations go back to the school or students (75% PTA & 15% RAT student prizes)!  You can also give cash or check donations to the Phantom Lake Elementary PTA box in the office - just make sure you include your reader's information. 
 
Special prizes include:
  • Pizza party for students who collect at least 5 donations (even if those donations are only $1 each!) 
  • Classroom party for the class with most money earned (based on an average) 
  • Popcorn party for the class with most logged reading time
