Roden School Council is excited to announce the start of our March Read-a-thon! Participate in this fun filled month of reading. Whether you are building on your love of reading or just starting out, we encourage you to take part for a chance to win!

WHO: All Roden students from JK to 8

WHAT: Students can participate by reading ANYTHING in ANY language: favourite books, comics, trading cards, homework instructions and logging the time each day or week. The monthly reading goals are:

  • JK/SK: read once a day for 15 days. Any reading counts, even being read to!
  • Grades 1-3: 200 minutes
  • Grades 4-6: 300 minutes
  • Grades 7-8: 400 minutes

WHY: Reading is fun! Plus a chance to win a Swag Sister Gift Cards! Every student who participates and reaches their reading goal will be entered into a draw for a Swag Sisters Gift Card! We have ONE GIFT CARD to give away for participants in each grade from JK to Grade 8. 

  • Every child who reaches this goal will be entered into a draw for prizes!
  • For every 15 minutes logged over their goal, they will get one additional ballot into the draw. More minutes = More chances to win!

HOW: Use the printed log sheet that was sent home on the last week of February via backpack mailer. There are additional copies available from Dan in the library if needed.   You can also use our Template here:
