Red Ribbon Reading

Red Ribbon Reading is not only a wonderful opportunity to continue your child’s reading progress over the summer months, but also is the only Selwyn fundraiser that 100% funds the PTA Operating Budget. This highly celebrated and fun summer reading program helps Selwyn students take ownership over all of the great learning opportunities the PTA provides over the school year.

Here is how Red Ribbon Reading works:


Parents: help your child set a reading goal. Encourage him/her to gather sponsors. Find out if your employer will provide a corporate match.

Students: ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors to pledge an amount of money per hour of summer reading or to make a flat donation. Record it on your sponsor form.


READ! READ! READ! Keep track of your hours using the reading chart that will be provided. Don’t forget: parents reading to children counts! Earn a raffle ticket for every 10 hours you read. You could be a winner!


Sponsor forms are returned to students.  Tally your summer reading hours and collect pledged dollars from sponsors.  Return pledges, sponsor form and your reading chart.  Celebrate your success on RED FRIDAY!
