  • Our 30th Annual Read-a-thon will run from March 1 - April 12, 2024.

  • During the month of March, we invite you and your children to focus on literacy and reading. We encourage each child to set goals for their reading and enjoyment of books. The goals that are set will look different for each child. As your child reads, pledges can be collected from family and friends for the books that they have read, or that are read to them.

  • List the books your child reads on a separate sheet of paper and submit it with the form. 

  • By participating, you can help the JICS Lab School Library raise funds to increase our collection! We use the funds raised to maintain and enrich our collection with books that bring diverse perspectives to our students.

    • We purchase from independent bookstores, have subscriptions to science and literature magazines, and bring wonderful authors, storytellers and illustrators to our school for visits.

  • Participation in Read-A-Thon is fun! The sponsor sheet allows families to identify sponsors and track the pledges for the month of March. If you prefer, a flat donation is also welcome. 

  • DONATIONS can be made to the “Jackman ICS Parents’ Association” online, by cheque or cash.

    • Tax receipts are available for donations of $25 or greater, and are only provided if you donate using the online form.
