2016 Read-a-thon Impact Report
Thank you Walton parents, family, students and community! You helped us surpass our goal of raising $12,000 so that our school library can continue to provide fun, interesting, and educational (...ssh!) resources to help our minds explore and expand. Here's some information about what we did to raise the money, and what the funds will go towards.
Thank you Walton Community! Together, we fundraised $14,040
Have a few extra bucks to give? You can still donate.
3,712.5 hours read
The 550 Walton students read 15 minutes a day from Jan 4th to 31st. A great assortment of books were completed like The Tales of the Beedle Bard, The Chronicles of Narnia, Star Wars and Pinkalicious Pinkie Promise. Well done!
The Walton Reading Tree was tended to by Ms. Augustyn. Each leaf represents a book read by a student.
The WHL Coquitlam Junior A team, the Coquitlam Express visited the school and read to every classroom, and played hockey against the grade 4's.
Our students did a good job of holding their own and scored some pretty goals! I lost track of the score :)
5 Flexpasses won
The Coquitlam Express gave us 5 flex passes to give away. We held a raffle and pulled names from the students who had read a book and posted it on our fundraising site:
Aneil, Div. 11
Emiliano, Div. 9
James, Div. 18
Adam, Div. 16
Sydney, Div. 5
Enjoy the games!
If you see any of our sponsors, be sure to give them a high five to thank them for their contribution. Altogether, they matched $5500 of your donations, dollar for dollar:
Chimp, the site that we used to facilitate the fundraising, and the company that I work for, has agreed to cover the cost of the credit card processing (2.8%). That is, 100% of all donations will be going to the Library.
