Becker PTSA exists to help support the welfare of children and youth in home, school, and community. To raise the standards of home life and to bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth. Some of the programs we have funded or helped support are: 6th grade author book program, Go Read a Book (GRAB) event, Family Fun Night, Safety Camp, author visits, guided reading books, and supplies and equipment needed thoughout the all four of the schools.
The funds raised during the Read-A-Thon are utilized to support literacy events such as those listed above (Go Read A Book (GRAB), guided reading books, author visits, and much more). Our goal this year is to break the record that we set last year of 305,000 minutes! Rumor has it, that if we do this, the Becker PTSA President will dye her hair blue, AND that there is a prize for the top reader in each school!...SO...READ! READ! READ! READ! AND Tell us about the wonderful books you are reading!
