Tro-Val’s Raising A Reader Read-A-Thon was a tremendous success! Collectively Grades K-6 students read for 51,531 minutes – WOW! … and together raised $7,589.76 in pledges! Trochu Valley School also received generous support for the Read-A-Thon from our community: Bank of Montreal (treasure box prizes for all participants), Kneehill Adult Learning Society (class pizza party), Trochu Public Library (free books for each class) and Alberta Treasury Branch (one buddy bench) -Thank you to all our sponsors!!!! All participants of the Raising A Reader Read– a-Thon received a prize from the treasure box and $649.00 in book fair credits were handed out based upon pledge totals.
