Read-a-thon for Science Camp

Hey there, Reed Family and Friends!

On March 1, students are going to drop everything and read from 2:00-2:50 p.m. They are doing this to earn money for their grade level trip to fifth-grade science camp trip. Fifth grade students going to science camp spend three nights camping and learning in the redwood forest.

It turns out it costs approximately $30,000 to send one grade level to science camp. That’s a lot of money! So, each student is asking for a suggested flat rate of $10 donation to help their grade level raise money for camp. Any amount is appreciated. Each student has a goal of $50-$100 for total pledges this year. All donations will go to the grade level as a whole.

For your convenience, electronic donations are accepted at Reed School Webstore. There’s a link at the top of our Reed homepage. Alternatively, you can write a check to Reed Elementary, or give cash.

If you want more information about Science Camp, head to the Reed website and find the program link to Fifth Grade Science Camp.  Some of our 5th graders’ camp newsletters are linked on that page. There you’ll see lots of reasons to be generous with your donation so that each student and class can make memories that last a lifetime! Thank you for your support!
