Read-a-thon

Read-a-thon record sheets are due the Monday , 

April 20th, after spring vacation.

Dear Parents,

The Cherry Valley Read-a-thon begins Thanksgiving Day. All family members are welcome to participate. In the past we’ve had older and younger siblings, parents and grandparents receive gold medals for their reading.

Each year students and family members keep track of their reading from Thanksgiving Day to the end of spring vacation. Yes, that’s a long time, but reading isn’t a race. All readers deserve credit for their reading. Some people record their reading only until they get the requirements filled. Others continue writing down the books they read until the end. Often those people have a personal goal that is higher than the schools.

K-3 students keep track of the number of books they read. They need to read or have read to them120 books. Younger children in the family will use this same record sheet. The record sheets are returned to the library where parents keep track of the reading progress. You can download the form at the bottom of this page

3rd Grade students:  If a third grader is reading chapter books and would rather fill out the form the 4th and 5th graders can, they can use the excel spreadsheet linked below.

4-5 and adults will need to read 2400 pages. Use a regular sheet of paper to keep track of your reading. Record your name, teacher, title of book and number of pages. Some people turn their reading record in at the end on an Excel spreadsheet. The record sheets are returned to the library.

To download the record sheets click on the arrow to the right of the file at the bottom of the screen.

Once a week, the Read-a-thon bulletin board outside the library will be updated, so students and family members can see how close they are to the Gold Medal Reading goal.  They are posted in graph form for each class making it much easier for all to track their reading. 

Thanks so much for supporting reading programs at school. Thanks also to the PTA who provide the money to buy the Gold Medals. 

Here’s to another great year of reading!

The K-3 record sheet and the 3-5 record sheet

(Third graders may use either form. Kids who are reading longer books may like the Excel spreadsheet form better)
