  • Pledge Forms should be used to track your sponsors and how much money they have pledged to donate.

  • The Reading Log must be used to keep track of how many minutes/pages outside of school you read each day.
  • Parents must sign the Reading Log to confirm that their child read all their logged minutes/pages. This will help to ensure fairness
