Whooo's Reading? Clinton School is!
►Please click here for more information on this event
Our annual Readathon begins February 1st and runs through March 2nd (Read Across America Day!). Students will bring home instructions and passwords this week to log in to whooosreading.org. It's a great way for kids to keep track of what they've read. For all the minutes they read, questions they answer and comments they leave for their friends, they earn points. They can use the points to decorate their "owlvatar" on the website.The instructions will include information about how you can send e-mails to friends and family who might be willing to donate money to the cause – they can choose to give a flat fee or pay by the minute or hour read! All proceeds go to the Clinton PTA, which helps fund our assemblies, field trips, classroom supplies and so many other things.
Questions? Or you can't find your child's password? Please email Liz Gordon.

A read-a-thon is like a jog-a-thon, except your child will be reading books instead of running laps, and earning pledges based on how much they read. Everything is tracked online, which makes inviting sponsors and logging reading much easier!
Here are two videos that explain how to participate in the Readathon:
Your child will receive a private online account where he/she will log reading. Parent and student instructions on how to use the website have been sent home. Your child will not be able to invite any sponsors without your authorization. Click here to view instructions on how to use your parent account.
IMPORTANT: Whooo's Reading works best if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
Unlike other fundraisers where we keep only 40-60% of each donation, our school keeps 85% of each donation using this program. We are really excited to promote reading and help our school raise the necessary money for our ongoing needs.
Thank you so much for your support!
