Read-A-Thon / Community Service - March 26, 2010
For the past five years, TCA has held a Read-A-Thon annual fundraiser. This year only the elementary classes participated in the Read-A-Thon on March 26, spending the entire day reading. The first grade class also read 105 books in the week leading up to the Read-A-Thon.
The junior high and high school students, instead of reading, held a community service day, cleaning up the TCA campus and nearby Chuparosa Park. Then the entire school enjoyed a special lunch.
This year's Read-A-Thon goal was to raise $15,000 to purchase a swing set and sunshade and make general improvements on the elementary playground. Donations from the fundraisers are still coming in, but the current total is just over $10,000. While short of the goal, this still enables TCA to purchase some of the playground equipment. This is a great accomplishment considering that, for the first time, this year's Read-A-Thon only included elementary students.
