The Rheem Read-a-thon
Rheem’s annual literacy program, the Rheem Read-a-thon, will run from January 16, 2020 through February 13, 2020. During this program, parents will track their student’s weekly reading time. All types of reading count: silent reading, reading to others, in-class reading, and being read to by family or friends.
Track hours every Friday using an online Google Form.

100% Participation Is Our Goal
The goal of the Read-a-thon is 100% participation, and the emphasis is on reading for fun! We have two school-wide incentives to encourage reading:
- If 90% participation is reached by Week 2, students will earn a Crazy Hair Day!
- If 100% participation is reached by the end of the read-a-thon, Pajama Day will be earned on Friday, March 27!
