We are excited about how much reading is going on!  

Thank you for encouraging your students to keep up with their reading time and fundraising.

We truly appreciate your help and support!

Our School Goal is to read 50,000 minutes and raise 12,000!

Right now we are at 4,600 minutes and have raised around $2,600

5. Don’t forget to check out the Read4Funds website for some great tools!

  • Online minutes tracking! Students, parents or teachers will log reading minutes online. No keeping track or turning in paper. Classroom and school thermometers show how many minutes your students are reading!
  • Simple online giving for friends, family and other donors! Due to Covid restrictions (cash handling and no volunteers in the school) we are asking for all donations to be made online. Given this request, if you still have to send a check or cash, it must be turned in by your student by 10/7 & 10/8. Please make checks out to SHE PTO.
  • Students or parents can send out emails to potential donors directly through the website! Personalize the pre-loaded email message on the “Family Resources” tab to let everyone know how to sponsor your student! Students will be sending out emails during Spirit week.
  • Parents can check students’ donations easily on the “Check my student donations” tab
    • Use the password hawk20 and then follow directions on the following page to see posted donations for your student(s)
  • Goal tracking thermometers in real time for school and classrooms!
  • Answers to lots more questions in our FAQ’s section!
