Our school read-a-thon started with a bang!  Glenridge students are reading around the clock! Now it's time to invite sponsors.  Just click on the invite sponsor button at the top of your Learn2Earn page and enter email address of friends and family. If you want to invite friends on social media like Facebook and Twitter there's an option for that too.  Once you invite a sponsor an email explaining what we are raising funds for and how they can help will be sent out.  It's that easy!
Now through November 5th help the Glenridge PTO raise money with Learn2Earn to fund Accelerated Reader and Raz-Kids. Two reading programs that students and teachers use to help motivate our kids, help them reach their personal reading goals and meet Kent School District reading standards. Information on how to set up an account for your child came home on Friday, October 2nd. Please take time to read the information, help your child activate their account and send out sponsor invites.
A short video on account set up can be found here.
A short video on how to sponsor your child and how to invite others to sponsor your child can be found here.
