The 2018 SMFC Ed Foundation Read-A-Thon was a great success with over 870,000 minutes read and $64,000 raised for our TK-5th Grade Elementary Music programs! That’s $26,000 more than last year!
An enormous thank you to the 12 participating elementary schools and to a generous local bank for matching the fundraising efforts of Foster City Elementary students.
Special acknowledgement to the top five inspirational readers who gathered the highest sponsorships: Colten S. (Meadow Heights), Jocelyn S. (Highlands), Jaxson S. (Foster City Elem.), Quinn W. (George Hall), and Aeon V. (Beresford).
Last but not least, the Read-A-Thon would not be possible if not for our amazing teachers. Kudos to our top five classes, each raising well over $1000, from College Park: Ms. Tong, Ms. Jackson, Ms. Shi & Ms. Hiraga; and, from Meadow Heights: Ms. Andrews.
Thank you for turning pages into dollars!
