Lisons le Monde!


Normandale is excited to announce our second annual Read-A-Thon, Lisons le monde! (Read the world!). This is an all school fundraiser benefiting the Normandale PTO and our French Intern program. Students will collect pledges from family and friends and log their reading minutes during the month of February. All minutes spent reading or listening, independently and together can be logged. Audio books, book readings online, reading to siblings and pets ALL COUNT! Both French and English reading minutes count as well. This will be a participation based fundraiser and is student driven! Students who participate will have the opportunity to win reading raffle prizes!


The more you read = the more chances to win fabulous reading raffle prizes!


During the Read-A-Thon, students will set their individual reading goals and collect pledges. Our school goal is to have the students of Normandale read 500,000 minutes during the month of February! This is 30 minutes per day for 4 weeks! WE CAN DO IT! In 2020, we surpassed our reading goal of 250,000 minutes by the second week of the Read-A-Thon!
