Talley Reading Rally: A Celebration of Global Poetry

The Talley PTO in partnership with our presenting sponsor, Jambo Books, is excited to announce our 2nd annual Reading Rally Fundraiser Friday, October 15 - Friday October 22!

Our theme this year is Reading Around the World: A Celebration of Global Poetry.

Our goal is for students to read 75,000 minutes in 7 days and raise at least $10,000.  Students will set goals, find sponsors, log minutes, and collect donations on the PTO website. 

Due to the pandemic, we will continue to run the logistics of the Reading Rally virtually. For directions on how to set up a Reading Rally campaign, click
HERE. Please BE SURE to UPDATE TEACHER in your child's Reading Rally campaign so we can accurately log class minutes!

****We are experiencing some technical difficulties. If you are unable to edit your child's existing campaign, please set up a new campaign. Allow some time for us to approve the new campaign and delete the old one.  New campaigns will not be immediately visible.*****

Starting Monday, 10/18 each day of the Reading Rally will feature a poem written by a different poet from around the world. Shout out to Mijha Godfrey, founder of Jambo Books, for her work in finding diverse poems to spotlight and for donating Jambo Book Boxes to winners!  Also, special thanks to Butter & Cream, New Talley Street Station, Kavarna, and Oakhurst Market for their generous prize donations!

Stay tuned for more details.
