• Dear Parents,

    Country Hills Panthers are readers!  Our students participate in the practice of daily reading throughout the school year both at school and home.  Developing good reading habits is a critical skill for all students and one Country Hills is determined to support.  This month we will celebrate reading with our yearly Books & Burgers Night on Thursday, October 3, 2019.

    Our reading goals for our students follow the county’s Reading Across Broward program. Students who complete their Reading Across Broward goals through Beanstack (100 picture books for K-2, 50 chapter books for 3-5) or participate in this Read-A-Thon are rewarded at our End of Year Reading Celebrations!

    ***All proceeds from our Read-A-Thon go towards helping us create End of Year Reading Celebrations for each grade. 

    Attached is our annual Read-A-Thon information.  It’s easy to participate!  Students are to ask “sponsors” (i.e. family members and friends, even themselves!) to pledge money for pages the student reads during the Read-A-Thon period.  Specific donations such as $5 or $10 are also accepted.  An example of a pledge is:  $.05 per page X 200 pages read = $10. 

    After a family member or friend agrees to sponsor you, fill out the Sponsor Pledge form with their name and pledge amount. Then read, read, read! Remember to log your reading pages on the special READ-A-THON reading calendar along with logging your books on Beanstack.

    When the READ-A-THON ends, call your sponsors and ask for their donations.  Checks should be made out to "Country Hills Elementary PTA". We hope you choose to join the fun and help our school continue our annual Reading Celebrations.

    Mrs. Caryn Cuadra
