Read-a-Thon SUCCESS!

Thank you for a making the 2016 Read-A-Thon, FLING into a Good Book, a great success! Our combined efforts motivated the kids to read over 120,000 minutes and to raise almost $35,000. Witnessing this type of school spirit fills us with pride and we hope you feel the same. The Read-A-Thon is the primary source of funding for the enrichment activities that are a part of our kids’ lives at Susan Lindgren. Because the students reached and exceeded their reading goal, they experienced a special assembly on November 7th featuring Dazzling Dave, a national yo-yo master!

A special thank you goes out to Nikki Letawsky-Shultz and Sara Faust for chairing this fundraiser. We also want to thank all the teachers, staff and parents for supporting the Read-A-Thon. It is an intense school-wide effort and it wouldn’t be successful without you. The time you invest in your child’s reading and the money you raise and donate to Susan Lindgren will pay for itself many times over. In our minds, the Read-A-Thon is the ultimate fundraising concept: Kids are encouraged to read a lot of books and our school receives 100% of the proceeds.
