Maratón de Lectura 2020
¡Vamos por el Oro!  |  Go for the Gold!

October is here and that means it is time for Maratón de Lectura, Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion’s reading marathon! This year’s reading goal is set at 1,000,000 minutes!  If students reach this goal we have something exciting planned that will be announced at our virtual event in November.
The purpose of this event is to help students develop their reading skills while raising money to support our school. This month-long event is the PTO’s MAIN fundraiser, funding approximately 75% of the PTO’s budget! Every dollar raised during Maratón de Lectura will go directly back into our school, benefitting our staff, students, families and facilities. Last year, EHSI students read 1,021,910 minutes and raised over $40,000 for our school! 

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 
  • Family events and cultural celebrations such as: Family Fun Night, El Día de los Muertos, Spring
  • Dance Festival, STEM Night
  • Angel Fund
  • Student events: Field Days, Kindness Retreat, 6th Grade Send-Off
