Encourage your children to read and recognize their service to the community with Community Chronicles' ingenious 2-4-6 Read-a-thon. Children pledge to read daily for two weeks, for a total of four hours, and get six sponsors to support their effort and the cause by pledging a dollar per hour of reading. 100% of funds raised will go to the purchase of educational tools for local classrooms.
Classrooms in Carencro will benefit from the program this January, with those in Upper Lafayette and Sunset/Grand Coteau to recieve the learning toys, games, music and books in May and September, respectively. Of course, you need not be a resident of Carencro to participate now. To the contrary, we hope that you will encourage your children's literary pursuits an philanthropic endeavors by participating in all three!
You can find a program brochure, as well as a tracking and participation form here. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on being a part of this grand iniative! Be sure you have your sponsorships gathered and reading completed by January 20th.
Teachers, if you'd like your classroom to benefit, all we need is a letter of application. Recipients will be chosen by a committee who will review the teachers’ letters of intent, giving careful consideration to why the materials are needed and how they’ll be utilized in the classroom. Simply email email@example.com for more detailed instructions.
