Spring Break is coming up soon and so is our Annual Spring Read-A-Thon! This is a fun event for all Cabrillo students, so we hope to have each child participate. Everyone who reads gets a prize for participating and the top readers will be awarded prizes for individual and class achievement.
Read-A-Thon KEY DATES:
March 23rd – 28th
Collect Pledges! Help your child ask people you know to sponsor your child by pledging money for each minute your child reads during Spring Break.
March 29th – April 7th
Read, read, read! Encourage your child to read! Visit our Wiseburn Library, it will be open during Spring Break! Use the reading log and record the number of minutes you read each day.
Time is up! Add up the minutes read and calculate the pledge amounts due.

Collect the pledge money from your sponsors!
April 15th – 19th
Pledge sheet, reading log and money are due. Please place everything in the envelope provided and turn everything in to your teacher. APRIL 19th is the last day to turn in pledges!
The money raised by the Read-A-Thon benefits Cabrillo School in numerous ways – it allows the PTA to help support our school’s vital enrichment programs such as Family Literacy Night, field trips, special school assemblies, music, P.E. instruction and more.
Remember – Everyone who reads gets a prize for participating and the top readers will be awarded prizes for individual and class achievement.
We appreciate your support at home during the Read-A-Thon! We hope to make this one of Cabrillo’s most successful events—both in terms of participation and money raised.
Above all, HAVE FUN and HAPPY READING!
