February Readathon

This February, the tradition continues as SEA holds its 5th Annual READ-A-THON.

This event reinforces good reading habits while raising money for our school!

Our school fundraising goal is $15,000 raised and 300,000 reading minutes logged!

All donations are tax deductible and go directly to the SEA PTA to fund classroom enrichment like Lego Robotics, Outdoor Learning, and Field Trips and Teacher requested grants for the classrooms

What can parents do to help?

Once again, we are working with The Get Movin Crew to provide an effortless way for us to raise money online.

Raising funds online for SEA is quick and easy!

  1. Go to thegetmovincrew.com to register your student.
  2. Click on the big yellow star to build your student’s fundraising page! It’s quick and easy!
  3. Share our fundraiser by posting to social media and sending a few emails to family and friends!
  • Please help SEA by helping your child raise a total of $100 in donations.
  • It’s easy to reach your goal with only 5 flat donations of only $20, or more.
  • Be a Superstar! Raise $250 or more and your student’s photo will be posted at SEA!

We strongly prefer that students use the online platform at www.thegetmovincrew.com to get pledges, however, we will also accept donations of cash and/or checks using the pledge sheet included in this packet.

Be sure to return all donations to SEA by March 2nd along with cash or checks made out to SEA PTA.
