It's READ-A-THON time!

Glenridge Elementary will be running a 2015 Reading Raiser from Oct 2, 2015 to Nov 5, 2015.
A Reading-Raiser is like a jog-a-thon, except your child will be reading books instead of running laps, and earning pledges based on how much they read. Everything is tracked online, which makes inviting sponsors and logging reading much easier!
Here are two videos that explain how to participate in the Reading-Raiser: 
- How to authorize your child's Reading-Raiser account:
- How to become a sponsor and invite more sponsors:

Your child will receive a private online account at where he/she will log reading. Parent and student instructions on how to use the website have been sent home today(please check their Friday Flyers). Your child will not be able to invite any sponsors without your authorization. Follow this link to view instructions on how to use your parent account:
IMPORTANT: Learn2Earn works best if you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
Unlike other fundraisers where we keep only 40-60% of each donation, our school keeps 85% of each donation using this program. We are really excited to promote reading and help our school raising money for Accelerated Reader and Raz-Kids.  Two reading programs that students and teachers use to help motivate our kids, meet their personal reading goals and meet Kent School District reading standards.
If you have any questions, or would like to participate on paper, please contact the PTO.
Thank you so much for your support!
