Today Grade 3 found out just how much money was raised during our sponsored readathon for the After the Wave foundation.

Reason for the Sponsored Readathon

A few months ago, we learned from Mrs Tananone that Grade 3 at ISB sponsors 12 students from the R35 school that was completely destroyed in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.  Each student needs 8,000 baht to pay for things like tooth paste, tooth brushes, books, water bottles, clothes and school supplies.  (Since we’re such super mathematicians, we worked out that we need to raise at least 96,000 baht).  If we were to raise extra money, that money would go to University fees and Medical fees.

Guess what the final total raised for the After the Wave Foundation was?

How Much Did Room 207 Raise?

Room 207 raised a great amount during the Read-A-Thon to help contribute towards the final total.  Here’s how much we raised – and we increased our reading stamina at the same time!

Congratulations 3rd Graders – what an amazing amount you raised!  We’re so thrilled with your effort that all 3rd Graders can have Monday off!  See you Tuesday!
