|Count up the total minutes that you read||April 20|

STEP BY STEP
1. COLLECT SPONSORS (3/22-4/11)
Call or email friends and family to ask them to sponsor pledges per minute you read. Use this sample email or this sample phone script to help you out! When your sponsors agree, keep track of their pledge information on this Sponsor Sign Up Sheet.
2. THE READ-A-THON: READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN! (4/12-4/19)
Keep track of your minutes EVERY TIME you read on the Pre-K – 1st Grade Reading Log or 2nd – 5th Grade Reading Log. If you want to get fancy, make a copy of this spreadsheet, input your minutes spent reading or being read to and pledge info and see all the math it does for you.
3. COLLECT DONATIONS (4/20-4/30)
4. DONATIONS DUE (4/30)
Make sure your sponsors have donated! And don’t forget to thank them! They can donate online here or through a check sent to school.
