Dear Parents,

Hampden Meadows will be running a 2021 Reading Raiser from Dec 20, 2021 to Jan 17, 2022.

A Reading-Raiser is like a jog-a-thon, except your child will be reading books instead of running laps, and earning pledges based on how much they read. Everything is tracked online, which makes inviting sponsors and logging reading much easier!

Here are two videos that explain how to participate in the Reading-Raiser:  - How to authorize your child's Reading-Raiser account: https://youtu.be/Xc81t6If-wo  - How to become a sponsor and invite more sponsors: https://youtu.be/JGvaXCPj8iM

Your child will receive a private online account at https://www.readafun.com/ where he/she will log reading. Parent and student instructions on how to use the website have been sent home. Your child will not be able to invite any sponsors without your authorization. Follow this link to view instructions on how to use your parent account: https://www.readafun.com/guides/parent?d=43.

IMPORTANT: Readafun works best if you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

Unlike other fundraisers where we keep only 40-60% of each donation, our school keeps 85% of each donation using this program. We are really excited to promote reading and help our school raise the necessary money for our ongoing needs.

Thank you so much for your support!
