“Read-A-Thon” Results Are In!
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)
Aeon V. (Beresford)
Last but not least, the Read-A-Thon would not be possible if not for our amazing teachers!
