2020 Read-a-Thon

It's time for our annual Read-a-thon fundraiser!

[ overview info here - below is copied from 2019 event ]

Your child can participate whether or not you or anyone else from your extended family is able to make a donation. We want 100% student participation in READING!


Here’s what you can do to help:

  • Set up your child’s personalized reading page. (You should have just received the information in your child’s backpack.)

  • Start singing our Read-a-Thon theme song for the 2018-2019 school year. It’s to the tune “Ob la di” by The Beatles.

  • READ, READ, READ and log those minutes with your child from November 19th- November 30th.

  • Share the fundraising link with family and friends!

  • Check out our Read-a-Thon video which will explain more!


After you complete your donation, you'll see a box to enter a student's name or class details. Please be sure to provide this info so we can track each classroom's progress!
