Read Around 2019

An annual tradition, the Read Around has been at Seward for over ten years now! This program encourages Seward students to read as much as they can for an entire month. In addition to promoting the joy of reading, the Read Around is an important PTA fundraiser, raising dollars that support many school programs. 

More parent volunteers are always appreciated for this event, so if you have time during the day to help at the school or wish to be more involved with the Read Around in general, please contact the Read Around coordinator at We would love to have you join our team!
Summary of the Read Around process: 
1) Students set a goal to read a certain number of minutes each day.
2) Students recruit sponsors to donate based on how much the students read. 
3) Throughout the Read Around month, the school provides many specific events and activities focused on reading, from classroom mystery readers to author visits to special reading experiences.   
4) Awards are provided to the top readers. 
5) All funds raised support school programs!
