Read-a-thon

Bubb Elementary Read-a-thon 2021

November 29-December 13

How does it work?

This year we’re going to have a special fundraiser at Bubb Elementary and we need your help! We’re going to have a schoolwide Read-a-thon for two weeks as a way to raise funds to support Bubb Elementary and to encourage the entire Bubb community to have fun reading. We’re challenging all Bubb students to read 20 minutes a day and have friends, family and community members sponsor all of our readers. Just track your child's minutes on the reading log each day (sent home in folders, you can download a new one here. You can also submit your reading logs to: bubbreads@gmail.com by December 20th to be counted.

What counts as minutes for the Read-a-thon?

Any reading activity will count including:


Reading a book alone

Being read to

Reading together with your adults or siblings

Any reading done in class


There will be Zoom Community Reading times that you can join that will count towards your minutes (look for announcements). And there will also be many videos of community members and parents reading that will count for the read-a-thon. And you can even make your own video reading a book if you like! Visit the Virtual Storytime on this PTA Website to check out all the videos.


How do people sponsor me?


Create an account at: https://bubbreadathon.goalstarter.org/ so your family and friends can support you. They can sponsor you by the minute (each 20 minutes is an “increment”) or they can support you a flat amount. You can email your personal page to anybody to support your reading!


Are there prizes for participating in the Read-a-thon?

  • Anybody to participates

  • Anybody who meets reading goals per grade

  • Top readers in each class and top classes

  • Raffle for top 10% fundraisers
