Read-A-Thon: Bee in Love with Reading!
Friday, February 8 through Thursday, February 14, 2019
Grab your favorite books and BEE IN LOVE WITH READING!
Encourage your child to read lots of books and find at least one sponsor to support his/her reading and to raise money for our school in one of Morris Brandon’s biggest fundraisers!
We are thrilled to welcome award winning illustrator, Michael P. White. Michael will help us kick off Read-A-Thon on Friday, February 8 at both campuses! Michael will produce several original illustrations during his visit. Purchase Michael P. White’s books and help raise money for Brandon! 25% of proceeds go directly to Morris Brandon PTA.
Place orders by January 30 to ensure delivery in-classroom prior to Michael’s visit on February 8. Students who have purchased copies of books are invited to bring them for Michael to sign after his presentation.
