Garden Gate Read-A-Thon (2022-23)
Each year the students at Garden Gate have the option to participate in the Read-A-Thon program. It encourages our students to develop long lasting reading habits.
This year's Read-A-Thon will begin on October 3 and end on April 28, 2023. The purpose of this program is to encourage long lasting reading habits in students. Parents can help by ensuring that their children have access to a wide variety of books.
At the end of the month after the students’ online reading logs are tallied, points will be added to their houses. The house with the most readers will receive 300 points, the 2nd place house will get 250 points, the 3rd place house will get 200 points and the 4th place house will get 150 points.
A large chart designed has been put up in the Library which will be updated every month, so that students, teachers and parents can keep track of house progress.
