Billingsley Read-a-thon

Read-a-thon to begin soon! - St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy

 

We are excited to announce that we will hold our Read-a-thon fundraiser on November 4th – November 18th.

The main focus of the Read-a-thon is for everyone to know we are committed to improving reading skills. To that end, the Read-a-thon promises to be a fun, exciting journey for all participants as they begin a personal Reading Adventure that challenges each reader to complete 10 reading sessions over our 2-week event.  Each student receives 15% of donations to spend in the Prize Store and the BHS Library receives 75-80%!

By on the lookout for flyers with the website and class code so you can activate your child’s account and start reading!

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations to all of our students that met their October MyOn reading goal. 

We had 57 students that read 180 or more minutes and earned a 30 minute Jump Pass to Launch!

 

The MyOn reading goal for November is 150 minutes.
