Elora Kawasawa, Read-A-Thon prize winnerThe school’s first ever Read-A-Thon last for 40 days, with 280 students in grades K-6 participating.

The children were asked to read for 40 days, log their reading accomplishments and request donations for their efforts from friends and family.

The goal was to encourage students to read–especially during winter break–and help raise funds for their school.

“We believe that our Read-A-Thon helped to empower our students,” said Scott Spector, principal of AEA’s elementary school. “By earning money for their hard work, our students realize that they can make a positive impact in their education.”

The top five fundraisers were awarded prizes, including tickets to Disneyland and a Kindle Fire. The highest earner gained $1,040 in sponsorships.

An additional 30 participants were eligible to win raffle prizes, which include gift certificates from local sponsors or custom AEA backpacks.

The class with the most participation earned a complete set of books from HarperCollins publishers.
