Kibera Read-A-Thon Results! Congratulations Class 5-A

2014 Readathon chart

Chart created by Mme Jairam’s grade 4 class

Mrs. Asma’s Grade 5-A class were the winners of the Kibera read-a-thon held May 5-9th. This read-a-thon was Lakeview’s final push to raise the $10,000 for the Kibera YMCA project, and WE DID IT!! Over the last 3 years Lakeview has raised a total of just over $10,000, which is being used to build a classroom in a primary school in Kibera, Kenya.

Lakeview students read a total of 667 hours! Mme Jairam’s grade 4 class created a chart (pictured here) showing the number of hours read by each class. With such amazing results, Lakeview School Council has kept its end of the agreement and has donated the final $1000 towards the conclusion of this global community project. And Class 5-A, having read the most, will receive a pizza party!
