Junior Yorkies participated in a Read-a-Thon the week of May 6 – 10.
“Get Caught Reading!” is a one-week literacy event designed to encourage and excite students to read while at the same time raising funds for two charities that have a close connection with YHS students, staff and families: Cause We Care Foundation and Kindler’s Society.
There were many incentives to encourage girls to read both at school and at home, including stickers and an entry to the book fair draw for girls who were “caught” reading during recess or lunch. See the photos.
Update: Yorkies raised $6300 from the Read-a-Thon!
