Readathon & Family Literacy Day 2021

16th Annual Readathon and Family Literacy Day:
Wednesday January 27th, 2021

It’s that time again.  We are doing things a bit different this year. Prepare for a fun-filled day and week.

To celebrate our love of literacy and reading, everyone at Brentwood Park will be reading for at least 45 minutes in our classrooms on this day as well as participate in activities and contests all week that celebrate literacy.
This year’s theme is: Take 20

What is a Readathon?  Everyone participates!
A pledge form was sent home with students.  Students pledge to read for a given amount of time.  Students can collect pledge donations beforehand or not.  Donations are voluntary. All funds raised will go towards resources for the library and literacy initiatives.

Students are not to request pledges from strangers, only ask parents, friends and relatives!
All pledge forms (whether used or not) must be signed by a parent and returned by:

  • School spirit: remember to wear your pyjamas on this day.
  • Don’t forget to bring enough reading material for the 45 minutes.
