Admiral Reader at Wilson Readathon
Admiral Reader, local television celebrity (a.k.a. Tom Binder, Wilson principal), whose monthly TV show teaches children to read to learn, understand, and have fun, recently made an appearance at Wilson Elementary School.
The Wilson students participated in a readathon to earn money for new playground equipment. Students voluntarily gathered pledges from parents, relatives and friends of Wilson School. The total amount of money raised for the readathon was $3,209.45.
The PTA (Parent Teacher Association), who sponsored the event, has set an annual goal of raising approximately $14,000. So far they have purchased a new climber and swings. The student fundraiser will help acquire the next set of equipment. The PTA brat fry and other fundraisers planned for next school year will help to complete the acquisition.
