Students from EY through G8 are invited to join CISPA’s Read-A-Thon!

CISPA will be holding a Read-A-Thon during Easter/Spring Break from April 2-12th, and your child is invited to join!

The Read-A-Thon is a challenge open to EY- Grade 8 students. It has two purposes:

  • Help get kids reading and off the screen over the Easter/Spring Break holiday, and
  • Support Bring Me A Book Hong Kong through sponsorship of the Read-A-Thon participants.

How does it work?

  1. Arrange sponsorship. Sponsorship is what you, the Parents, decide it is. Some families decide to donate a fixed amount; some families decide to offer a fee per book or page read. Totally up to you! 
  2. Get reading! The children read their books during the holiday or (for younger students) are read books. Children will hear more about the Read-A-Thon in their library classes and will be encouraged to borrow more books before the holiday starts.
  3. Record the books read and money earned. These can be entered into the Read-A-Thon Sponsorship Form attached below.
  4. Drop off the sponsorship form and the cheque for the books read.   There will be a drop box outside of school and in the library to collect the forms and cheques. Deadline for turning in the sponsorship form after Easter break is Tuesday, April 20th
  5. Find out if your child won!   For prizes, students will be split into three groups:  EY-G2, G3-G5, and G5-G8.  CISPA will randomly select three participants from each age group for a $250 HKD Bookazine gift certificate. In addition, the House with the most participants (i.e. Raven, Orca, Bear, Mountain Lion) will win a trophy.
  6. Feel good about supporting literacy in Hong Kong. The Read-A-Thon will benefit Bring Me a Book Hong Kong (BMABHK).
