Lower School CSO Gets Visit From Ronald
The Read for Ronald Program
On January 23rd, 4th and 5th grade students were treated to a visit from Ronald McDonald
who came to school to explain the "Read -for- Ronald' program to benefit the
Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. During the month of February, 4th and 5th grade
volunteers will get their family and friends to "sponsor " them for every
minute that they read. At the end of the month, students will calculate and collect

Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, with GA receiving 10%! The kids are encouraged to
read and are rewarded by knowing that they are helping sick kids and their families.
There are also special "perks" and prizes for all who participate!
