On January 11, Tamarac Elementary School students participated in an assembly where they learned about the Ronald McDonald House and the Read for Ronald McDonald House Program. Students are being challenged to read as many minutes as they can in the month of January, to help seriously ill children and their families. It’s all part of the Read for Ronald McDonald House Program, which raises funds to support the Albany Ronald McDonald House.
Students wishing to participate will be asking family and friends to sponsor their reading for the month of January with pledges of either a flat amount for all reading accomplished during the month, or any amount of money they decide per minute read during the month. Students will keep track of the number of minutes they read on their January reading logs. At the end of the month, students will collect their donations from their sponsors and return the donations to school. Two student representatives will attend the Awards of Excellence Celebration – Highest minutes read and highest donations collected.
Below is a link to the Read for RMH video that students viewed during the assembly. Please take a look and learn about this special program!
