DCR Read-A-Thon and Spirit Week
This year Darby Creek staff and students participated in a school wide Read-A-Thon event as our major fundraiser for the year. Our official Read-A-Thon date was October 9. The students enjoyed a “read-in” throughout much of their day and played some fun book centered games.
Students will be tracking their minutes of reading (recording sheets and pledge sheets sent home with instructions) on October 1st and students will end recording their minutes of reading for our Read-A-Thon fundraiser on October 11.
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc may choose to make a monetary donation as a flat rate donation or as a donation per hours/minutes read. The money will be due to PTO on October 17. Our goal from the proceeds from the Read-A-Thon is to purchase new media center tables and chairs so that the media center furniture will be easy to move (all items on casters), stackable, and colorful/inviting.
During the week of our Read-A-Thon (October 10/7-10/11) students and staff were encouraged to dress for our spirit week:
Monday, October 7–Crazy Sock Day
Tuesday, October 8–Dress as your favorite book character day
Wednesday, October 9–WEAR YOUR READ-A-THON SHIRT that every student receives
Thursday, October 10–Pajama Day
Friday, October 11–Darby Creek Colors, Darby Creek shirts, or AD/DC Warrior Dash shirts
