What is the Day of Reading?

The Day of Reading is a different kind of student fundraiser – one that inspires the imagination, links children together through the magic of storytelling, AND raises money for some exciting enhancements to our campus and programs. Our students look forward to their friends and family sponsoring them to spend a day at school doing what they love – reading!

Why is it important to donate today?

GOOD NEWS! We have received a matching donation for $2,500 which means we get to match dollar for dollar up to this amount.

We are currently seeking an additional Matching Donor with the hope of having a total of $5,000 (or more) matching funds. Would you like to match or increase the amount? Email Jacqueline Valle, or call 646-8236 x153

Want to learn more about Day of Reading?

STUDENTS: After inspiring friends and family to give, on March 23rd, the Oak Grove students will come to school in their jammies, along with a favorite stuffed toy and a treasured book. High School students will be paired with a buddy in the younger grades and the day will be spent exploring the magic of words and pictures.

GRANDPARENTS & PARENTS: Also on March 23rd, Oak Grove parents and grandparents are invited to come to school in their jammies (or at least something comfortable) and read too! You are welcome to visit your grandchild/child in the classroom. Please arrange this beforehand, directly with the student’s teacher.

Please sign in at the Main House Front Office at the start of your visit, where there will be Coffee, Tea, and Snacks available.

What are we raising funds for?

Learning Environments! With your donation, we will implement teacher requested enhancements which will directly benefit the students.

At all grade levels, the teachers were asked how they would enhance their environment … to have a relationship to the natural world, to be beautiful, natural, comfortable and organized. Their replies spanned many ideas and we are now raising money to fulfill them. Some of the enhancements include: converting outdoor deck areas into weatherized academic spaces, adding windows to classrooms to provide more light and views of wooded areas, adding double glass doors to gain easy access to the outside, and many more enhancements to expand our learning environments.

To fund these projects, we will need to raise a total of $40,000.

For more information, contact Warren Petersen: events@oakgroveschool.org. With your donation, we are closer to our goal.

Family and friends can help.

The event spreads beyond campus to extended family and friends because each one of us can make a donation large or small to sponsor the Day of Reading.

Sponsor a student today. Thank you for helping to make a difference.
