Spell-a-thon-online.com because it is an easy and effective way for our school to quickly raise much needed funds for field trips and enrichment programs. We love that our children will be learning while raising money, that they are directly involved in the fund raising process, and that parents/guardians will not be asked to reach into their own pockets!
Children will be given 50 grade-level appropriate words which they will practice spelling at home during the next three weeks. The program begins on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 and the testing window is November 18 – 20, 2016. Testing can be done on a computer, iPad, or smart electronic device.
You need to register your child in order for them to participate. Once registered, parents/guardians will be able to help children to study the word list, send emails about the child's personal fundraising page, and track personal fundraising goals. While children are practicing their words, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, friends, and neighbors will have the chance to support your child's education and our school by making donations through each child's personalized webpage. Please note, donors will be supporting your child base on per words they are learning, and not per how many words are answered correctly on the test.
Our Spell-a-thon will culminate with an exciting celebration party at which all Spell-a-thon participants will receive awards for studying and learning their words! More details about the celebration party will be forthcoming, but please save the date for November 18, 2016.
