HOW DO WE RAISE FUNDS?
October is the time for Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion’s annual Maratón de Lectura/Read-Thon! This event is designed to help students develop their readings skills and a love for books while raising money to support our school. This month-long event is the PTO’s primary fundraiser, funding over 75% of the PTO Budget! All dollars raised during Maratón de Lectura will go directly back to the school and classrooms!
HOW DOES THE SCHOOL BENEFIT?
In recent years, money raised by Maratón de Lectura has helped our school in the following ways
• Teacher grants for classroom needs • Staff appreciation events and meals • Teacher reimbursements for supplies • PBIS incentives and rewards • Building improvements and new playground equipment • Angel Fund • Family events and cultural celebrations such as: Family Fun Night, El Día de los Muertos, Spring Dance Festival, STEM Night • Student events: Field Days, Kindness Retreat, 6th Grade Send-off
