Dear CVA Families,
We are excited to announce a school-wide Read-a-Thon, and we’d like your student to join us! This event will have a couple of important benefits. First, it puts the spotlight on reading for fun. Second, the money raised will go to support Paradise Adventist Academy which was devastated by California fires. The money College View Academy students raise will go to provide crucial resources for the students and teachers who lost everything in the fires.
We can be the hands and feet of Jesus one book at a time!
This video is from the Paradise Adventist Academy website, where they talk about the need for financial assistance. We aren't asking for financial assistance for the families, we will be sending them money for teacher & student supplies - but this is a nice overview of the people involved and the lives that have been changed.
What we’d like you to do:
1. Help your child find sponsors among family and friends. We are going to spend one day reading at school, and sponsors are asked to give a flat, one-time donation. Sponsors (please remember those that live far away) can pay directly online at cvak12.org (click on the Read-a-Thon link), by cash, or by checks made out to College View Academy.
2. Come to school ready to read. On Wednesday, February 13, each grade will read in a variety of ways (read to self, listen to reading, buddy read, etc.) for a grade-appropriate block of time.
Thank you for your support.
