We're rounding the bend to the last week of the read-a-thon and we need to raise about $1,500 to get to our fundraising target of $12,000.
We've got some great sponsors that have signed up in our final stretch. Pediatric Dental Group, Monarch Dentistry and A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections - Tricities. They're joining our existing sponsors: Cortney Lessard - Realtor, Church's Chicken, James Garbutt - Realtor, Zac Jacobson (Corbin & Jazmine's parent), Dave & Jenny Tang (Faith's parents), and Kho Tian Hu (relative of Ivonne & Daphne Kho). These sponsors will be matching every dollar you donate with their own. If you happen to see any of these sponsors, make sure you say "Thanks!" from Walton Elementary.
Don't forget to enter the draw for the Coquitlam Express Flex Pass! The Junior A team gave us 5 flex passes to raffle, where each of them is good for 8 admissions to their games! To enter, all you have to do is to note down the book that your child has read on your child's class fundraising page. For some helpful tips to find out how to do this, checkout the Read-a-thon FAQ page. The winner will be drawn during the Wednesdaymorning fitness. (the deadline to get your entry in was supposed to be Sunday night, but I'll extend it to Monday night to accept any last minute entries)
If we reach our fundraising target, in addition to being able to fund the library for 4 years, there's another bonus (that the students are quite excited about): Mr. Mah, the school principal, has volunteered to have his head shaved at an assembly in front of all of the kids. (And he's going to let me film it so that I can share it with you!). Mr. Mah isn't shy about revealing his love for Star Wars, so I'm kinda wondering if after his head gets shaved if he's going to look like:
