The LWPTSA extends a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our Wildcats who participated! We're incredibly proud of our readers and grateful for your support, which made our fundraiser a success. 

Our students collectively logged over 53,000 minutes! 

*Our Top reader was 3rd Grader Mackenzie L who logged over 3,200 minutes!! Excellent work Mackenzie, we hope you read some good books! 

*Wyatt L who is also a 3rd grader was our top earner, raising over $500! Way to go Wyatt!

*A huge shout out to Mrs Haws class who collectively were not only the class with the most minutes read at over 14,300 minutes but also the class who raised the most at nearly$2,000. They have earned a Hot Chocolate party provided by the PTSA!! We can't wait to celebrate your success!

We can't wait to host another Read-A-Thon next year! Keep on reading Wildcats!
