Welcome to the Read-a-Thon!

Read-a-thon - Wild about reading!

November 8-19, 2021

We are excited to begin our Kaiser & Woodland Read-A-Thon Fundraiser sponsored by KWPFO. This year’s theme is “Wild about Reading” -- a fitting theme to share our excitement that students have been able to return safely to in-person on-campus instruction. We want the students to share in the enthusiasm by having a fun and WILD time reading! Whether your student is reading independently or being read to, and at any age or reading level, we hope your family takes this time to ENJOY a good book, a poem, a magazine, an audio book or even a recipe!

Over the two weeks, November 8-19, we hope your student will:

  • Collect online donations from family and friends via our easy-to-use fundraising page at: mybooster.com.
  • Log their reading at mybooster.com to earn reading rewards on prize days.
  • Have fun earning “dress up” days when the schools hit certain fundraising thresholds.
  • Enjoy different types of reading and reading activities by completing a “Bingo” card.
  • Visit their local library to get a library card if they don’t already have one.

How to Get Started

Step 1: How to set up your online Read-a-Thon Account

  1. Go to mybooster.com to begin.

  2. Click ‘login' (if you have an account) or 'Sign Up' (if the student has never used the site.)

  3. Click ‘Register a Student’.

  4. Type in Kaiser/Woodland Elementary OR click 'Enter Your Registration Code' and enter code: 875-154.

  5. Enter the student's first and last name and select their Teacher’s name.

  6. Agree to terms and continue.

  7. Register another student or Select No.

  8. Click 'View Participant Dashboard' and Begin Pledging!

Rewards: Students will be rewarded for their fundraising efforts in two ways (1) as a collective school community via School Spirit Days and (2) with opportunities to win fun prizes.

KWPFO has focused on this program as the primary fundraiser for this school year and has set a goal of $30,000 to continue to fund technology, arts, science and enrichment opportunities.

Step 2: Tracking Reading for Rewards

You can log your student’s minutes at mybooster.com. Once you login, scroll down to “Program Overview”, expand the section, and click on “Log my student's minutes read!” This link will redirect you to a reading submission page. Complete all of the fields, select to “Send me a copy of my responses” and click “Submit”.  Enter your reading minutes each day and we'll keep track of the rest!

On “Prize Days” – November 12, 17 and 22 – teachers will distribute rewards for students who have logged enough minutes to reach the next “animal” level:
