Cedar Heights Read-a-Thon begins October 19!

      The Read-a-thon is here!Image title

The Read-a-Thon is an easy fundraiser that helps Cedar Heights’ PTU (Parents Teachers United) raise funds to help purchase new playground equipment, instructional supplies, student learning and leadership activities, and funding for teacher grants.

Students will receive a collection/reading tracking form this Friday.  We encourage students to read EVERY night and track their minutes at the bottom of the form on the specific date. Minutes are only to be tracked for non-school hours.

If you need a copy of the tracking form, you can download here:
