March is Read to Feed Month!!

The Center School Cardinals will be working together as a community to help alleviate world hunger by supporting

Heifer International…

                                                                                    The more we read, the more we help!

 

Step 1:  Classes set goals for number of minutes to be read.

Step 2: Students seek out sponsors.  Sponsors can offer an amount per minute or hour (which may motivate them to read more) or a flat rate.  Sponsors may make their contributions online (a link will be posted on class webpages for easy access) or use the envelope provided in the Read to Feed Student Guide.

Step 3: READ, READ, READ for the whole month of March!

Step 4: Students turn in all materials at the end of the month.

Step 5:  Classes will tally the number of minutes read and the amount of money raised.  Together they will decide which animal(s) and/or supplies they would like to purchase.

Step 6: An all-school assembly will take place to celebrate our accomplishments!

 

Heifer International is an organization that helps families around the world and in the United States by giving gifts of livestock and training.  The animals help families provide nutrition and income from selling products like eggs, yarn, or cheese.  The training helps families learn to care for their animals so that they will continue to benefit from the gifts well into the future. 

Talk with your child about what he/she learned from Miss Liz about Heifer’s work at the assembly on Wednesday!

Check your child’s  folder or backpack for the Read to Feed packet.

Let's go Cardinals!!
