Make a pledge to encourage reading and raise money for Lynn Road Elementary! Our Read-                Pledge Forms Due
a-Thon will be based on minutes read per student between February 4 and March 4, 2010.              Tuesday, February 16th
There are two ways to make a pledge.
1. You could sponsor a student a flat amount. If you pledge a flat donation of \$20, no matter how much the student reads you will owe \$20.
2. You can pledge an amount for minutes read. For example, a student reads 500 minutes over the span of the read-a-thon. If you
sponsored this student for 5 cents per minute, you would owe .05 X 500 = \$25. Or at 1 cent a minute, you would owe .01 X 500= \$5.
If the student were to read 1000 minutes at 5 cents a minute you would owe .05 X 1000=\$50. Or at 1 cent a minute you would owe
.01 X 1000= \$10.
* YOU MAY PUT A LIMIT ON ANY DONATION. Just indicate that on the pledge form.

Do not pay now. Money will be collected after the read-a-thon ends on March 5. There will be a \$25 fee on all returned checks.
