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 the pledges and bring the money in to school.  The money will go to the  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!

The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, the nation's first,  is a home-away-from- home  for  families with seriously ill children being treated at area hospitals. It provides shelter, food, laundry facilities, transportation and emotional support so families may focus their attention on their  children.  Last year children at other local schools raised over $95,000  in the "Read-for-Ronald" program.
