RRR Pledge Money Due!

Red Ribbon Reading is in full swing! Don’t forget, pledge forms and pledge money are due this Friday, September 28!

Red Friday is happening on October 12. Our top readers and students in the 100 hour club will be recognized and awarded for all their hard work this summer. For your student to receive their raffle tickets, you’ll need to return their logs and collect pledges. Another fun bonus…the grade with the most participation will be awarded with a pizza party!

As always, thanks for supporting Red Ribbon Reading! It’s because of our awesome parent involvement that our kids are able to take amazing field trips and our teachers have all the supplies they need to provide kids a wonderful learning environment.

Checks are welcome (made out to Selwyn PTA with your student’s name and RRR in the memo line) or Paypal is another easy option for payment.

Please contact Jennifer Whitworth or Krissy Sternberg with any questions.
