First of all, I’d like to thank all of you who made this year’s Read-A-Thon successful. We indeed fed the need to read! Here below is a breakdown of how much money we were able to raise this year. Given the uncertain economic times and all other competing fundraisers, we have done well.














As for the winners, I am proud to officially announce who they are. Our Top Teacher Island-wide (Elementary Division) is Frank Pangelinan from Saint Francis Catholic School with a per capita of $15.26; (Secondary Division) goes to Nekola Fitzgerald from Notre Dame with a per capita of $11.02; our Overall goes to Rosemarie Quitugua of Agana Heights who brought in $5,563.52 in on-time money, and our Top Day Care Island-wide goes to Chona Domingo from Montessori with a per capita of $61.25.


Honorable mention goes to Anita Quitugua from B.P. Carbullido with the highest per capita of $11.25 (including late money) and the highest reading hours recorded this year (1,245).

Christine Borja, a first-year representative from JFK, has the highest per capita for public high school with $3.99. Finally, Annie Perez from San Vicente, garnered the highest per capita (on-time and overall) reaching an astounding $30.57!

SPEND IT NOW! at the GWHS Cafeteria and April 25th, Saturday, our representatives’ luncheon at the World Café from 11:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. Confirmation by April 20th is required.
