Hello Maywood Families, 

The PTA is excited to host a Read-a-Thon starting on March 6th. Students will be tracking their reading minutes over the course of 10 days, March 6th -15th. Our goal for the Maywood Tigers is to log 100,000 minutes over 10 days! We can do this!! There are some great prizes lined up for students who participate including new bikes, bookstore gift cards, Maywood Spiritwear and a chance to be a guest on the morning announcements!
 
The Read-a-Thon is also our school’s main fundraiser this year, our goal of $16,000 will help support our ongoing community outreach, which is currently prioritizing stocking our foodbank, teachers’ curriculum grants, and materials for remote learning. We are using Pledgestar to track students’ reading minutes online and to collect donations. Due to remote learning we will only be accepting online donations this year and are unable to recieve check/cash donations. 
 
Here’s 3 links for you to get started!
