Parents and Students get help here
Day of Reading
OUR ANNUAL STUDENT FUNDRAISER
Kicked off Tuesday, March 3, with a school-wide walking parade
and culminates on Friday, March 20 – the actual Day of Reading
PAGE FOR SPONSORS TO DONATE https://oakgroveschool.org/reading/
On Friday, March 20, 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 20, 2020.
Fundraising officially begins on Tuesday, March 3, and continues until March 20. Students (and parents) can get sponsors in two ways:
- The sponsorship webpage: 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 was given a fuschia-colored sponsorship envelope at the Day of Reading Launch Assembly.
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 is different in a big way! Fifty percent of the funds will go toward Old MacDonald’s organic gardening program in coordination with the Hot Lunch program. The other 50% will be shared with “Food for Thought,” an Ojai-based organization dedicated to providing education and healthful food options within the Ojai Unified School District. Read about their wonderful program here.
We are aiming to raise a total of $40,000.
