  • READ-A-THON
     

    Thank you so very much for all of your support throughout our first Read-a-Thon! It was quite a success! 300 students participated and we more than doubled our goal of $5000, taking in a little more than $11,000 after expenses. Collectively our kids read 136,465 minutes!  Way to go KGA Knights! 

    If your child participated in the Read-a-thon and turned in a form, they will receive a certificate and a couple of small prizes this week. If your child earned a bracelet or duck, those will also come home today or tomorrow.
