Day of Reading
OUR ANNUAL STUDENT FUNDRAISER
Kicked off Tuesday, March 6 with a wild and wacky all-school parade
and culminates on Friday, March 23 – the actual Day of Reading
PAGE FOR SPONSORS TO DONATE https://oakgroveschool.org/reading/
On Friday, March 23, all Oak Grove students, faculty, staff and participating parents will come to school in their jammies, along with a favorite stuffed toy and a treasured book. Older students will be paired with a buddy in the younger grades and the day will be spent exploring the magic of words and pictures. Until then, each of our students is asked to request that their aunts, uncles, grandparents, and neighbors sponsor them to read (or be read to) on March 23, 2018.
Fundraising officially begins on Tuesday, March 6, and continues until March 23. Students (and parents) can get sponsors two ways:
- The sponsorship webpage: www.oakgroveschool.org/reading/
Just type in the student’s name and complete the form.
- Directly, with one-on-one requests (like we did with candy sales or walkathons when we were kids). Each student will be given a kraft colored sponsorship envelope at the Day of Reading Launch Assembly on Tuesday.
Day of Reading is the ONE opportunity for our students to raise money to support their school. In the past, our students have purchased many needed items through this annual fundraiser including: two of our vans, instruments for the music programs, art patios, new playground equipment, water fountains, pavilion seating and much, much more.
This year’s Day of Reading focuses on Learning Environments. 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.
