Read-A-Thon

posted Jan 15, 2019, 11:48 AM by Corinne Altham   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 4:44 PM ]

Dear Brown School Families,


This week we are launching a library reading initiative/fundraiser called a Read-A-Thon. During the Read-A-Thon (1/16-1/30), students will celebrate their reading as we raise money for The Brown School Library Mural Project. Maine illustrator and author Kevin Hawkes has agreed to paint a mural in the Brown School Library! We are so excited to begin this project, but first need to raise funds for the paint, materials and artistic labor. Our Read-A-Thon page: https://www.read-a-thon.com/school/Frank-I.-Brown-Elementary-School-_23209


You can share your child’s page with friends and family via social media and email. Just follow the instructions on this sheet to launch your child’s page. Thanks to your efforts, we have raised over $1,000 already from the November book fair. Please email me or call the library if you have any questions. Please follow us on Instagram to see the progress once the mural work has begun and thank you again for supporting the Brown School Library!

Dear Brown School Parents, 

This week in your child's tote you will find login information for Tales2Go, a streaming audiobook service used at our school. In 2017, our students listened to a grand total of 129,826 minutes of audiobooks using this service! All Brown School School students have home access to Tales2Go! The paper has your child's username, password and instructions on how to download and use the app or how to listen on a desktop/laptop. No Internet at home? No problem. We have lots of ways for all kids to access audiobooks with or without web access. Send me an email with any questions (althamco@spsd.org). Happy listening!
