Welcome to Thomas Kelly Elementary School

    An International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) World School



    Our Read-a-thon fundraiser is in full swing now. It is exciting to see our book worm growing as students are turning in their reading minutes. Thank you to everyone who is sponsoring our students. This fundraiser is gonig better than I would have ever imagined. Thank you for your support! 

    Have you seen the flyer about the Thomas Kelly Read-a-Thon? Have you signed up at www.read-a-thon.com/read (secret code 225870) to create a fundraising page for your child yet?  If not, sign up today.  Here’s how it works:

    • Create a read-a-thon dashboard for your student(s) at the link above. Here, you’ll be asked to track minutes read at home.
    • Fundraising: You can also send emails and create social media posts directly from your dashboard that can help your child raise money to support the school. The more money your student raises, the more prizes your child can “purchase” from the online prize store at the end of the Read-a-Thon! Prizes range from stickers, bookmarks and temporary tattoos to toys, binoculars and ear buds.
    • Top Readers: Additionally, top readers in each grade will earn a pizza party and more!
    • If you can’t create an online dashboard, don’t worry – your student can still participate. In-class reading minutes are also being tracked and will count towards the pizza party prize.
    • The Read-A-Thon runs from September 27 thru October 15.

    Our goal is to encourage every child to expand their imaginations and worlds through reading! Talk to your teacher if you need any help connecting your student with a good book or two.
