New Horizon School Westside students are participating in a Read-a-thon to promote reading and fund raise money for the school. The more we promote reading, the more awareness our teachers, students and parents will have of its importance. If our students know reading is important to everyone, they are more likely to take reading serious.

This program provides a way for NHSW to hold an exciting read-a-thon fundraiser that will raise money by incentivizing participation in a reading event. Our students will be challenged to complete 10 reading sessions between May 8, 2017 – May 22, 2017. The key is to make sure everyone knows that your focus for two weeks will be on reading, reading skills and reading comprehension.

What’s the best part? 15% of all sponsored donations goes back to your reader to buy prizes!
