Good afternoon Cotee River Families this is Mr. Wolfe with your upcoming weekly information. This past Friday our school wide Read-A-Thon fundraiser started and continues through October 23rd. Your child should have brought home the information on Friday. If every child could raise $30 we will meet our school wide fundraising goal. All monies go directly back to our scholars and staff.
Scholars will have two weeks to collect pledges before a school wide reading event on Friday, October 23, 2020 during their scheduled reading time. Scholars will read or be read to for a total of 60 minutes.
Two Ways to Make a Pledge:
(Our Goal $18,000 if each scholar gave $30.00, we can meet our goal.)
1. FLAT DONATION – You can sponsor a scholar with a flat amount. If you pledge a flat donation of $30, no matter how much the scholar reads you will owe $30.
2. PLEDGE PER MINUTE – You can pledge an amount for minutes read. For example, scholars will be reading 60 minutes on the day of the Read-A-Thon. If you sponsored a student for 25 cents, you will owe .25 cents x 60 minutes = $15.

Awards & Giveback:
Top Class for each grade level will receive 10% give back to the classroom based on what is collected.
Top scholar for each classroom will receive $25.00 towards a Scholastic Book order.
This is for all classes whether they are here at school or on the MSOL platform. Also this Thursday October 15th will be Fall Picture Retakes for those that needed to have them done. The end of quarter 1 is this Friday, October 16th. If you have not already, please schedule a conference with your child’s teacher to hear about all of their strengths and next steps in their education journey. In grades 2nd-5th scholars will have the opportunity to participate in an upcoming mock Presidential Election where they can vote online through November 3rd in class as they learn about the voting process. Attention MySchool Online parents whose child’s teacher is Ms. Cappel, Mrs. Cairney, Mr. Leonard or Ms. Spear-On Monday October 19th from 10 am-12 pm we will be distributing Eureka Math workbooks that your child will need for Quarter 2. If your child is in Kindergarten or 1st grade for Mrs. Emert they should already have their materials as we gave out materials for Quarter 1 and 2 in August. If you are unable to come during this day and time please call the front office to schedule an appointment for the pick up of these materials.
We hope everyone has a great rest of the day and we look forward to seeing everyone ready to learn no later than 9:40, Monday morning. Stay well and safe.
