If you have any questions, please email Archway Lincoln PSO.

This year we hope to raise $40,000 through our Whooo’s Reading Read-a-thon.

Where would this money go?

Project 1: Finish the Library Shelving

Last year we were able to complete half the shelving in the library.  This year we will complete the other half.

Project 2: Finish Mounting Projectors in Classrooms

This year we finish mounting the projectors in the classroom.  Last year we did 9 classrooms.  This year we will mount projectors in 21 classrooms.

Dress as Favorite Literary Character Day

The last day of our Read-a-Thon, Tuesday, October 31st, is also Dress as Your Favorite Literary Character Day. Students (and teachers/staff) are encouraged to come in costume as their favorite literary character (no pop culture). Ideas include Pollyanna, Wilbur from “Charlotte’s Web,” Alice from “Alice in Wonderland,” or Robin Hood.

Your child MUST get their idea approved by their teacher. Permission slips went home before fall break.  Check with your teacher if you did not receive a slip.
