Get ready for the……Hawk-a-thon


Hello Families and Staff of Mountlake Terrace Elementary! This year’s HAWK-a-THON goes from February 15th until Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2nd .  This is our 2nd big PTO fundraiser event of the year!

You’re going to hear a lot about reading in the next few weeks!

  • This year, it’s a READ-a-THON!  February 16th  – March 2nd

  • Special Author Dan Gemeinhart assembly during school on Thursday, February 22nd

  • Family Reading night/Site word bingo at the School -  Wednesday, February 28th 6:30pm-8pm

  • Read across America – Lynnwood Crossroads Center – Thursday, March 1st from 3-7pm

  • Read across America – Downtown Edmonds - Saturday, March 3rd from 10:30am-3:30pm

What is a read-a-thon and what is our Goal?

What? Students will get pledges from friends and family either by reading blocks or by a flat rate – much like our Walk-a-thon by either lap or flat rate. Every time your student reads, and records that on their tally sheet, they can challenge themselves and their boosters by trying to raise more $$ for our MTE PTO and ultimately our kids.

Our goal: To raise money for our MTE PTO and all the Bomb-Diggety things we get to do with that money!

How much per student?

  • There is no minimum – but if every student raised $30, the school would raise almost $12,000! Readers will tally their reading through 20 minute ‘Blocks’ from 2/16 – 3/2.

  • Kids will get a packet with a sheet for their donors, and a sheet to record their reading blocks.  Download that sheet here.

What are the prizes?!?

Well first – we’ll all be winners – because reading is powerful.                 And we have powerful kids!

  • The top pledge earner in each class will get to be in a pool party AND invite a friend!

  • The top reader in each class will get a $10.00 gift certificate which can be redeemed at the June Book Fair AND the June Book fair has a BOGO (Buy One, Get One) FREE offer!

The whole thing ends with a pretty big holiday-  Dr. Seuss’ Birthday with events on Thursday, March 1st and Saturday, March 3rd.  Please see the attached flyer – there is a Read Across America event on that same weekend of March 2-3rd. Your librarian, Mr. Winklejohn will be at Lynwood Croosroads Center on March 1st, and ANY Mountlake Terrace Kids he sees will get an extra goodie from him!
