Read-A-Thon, 2/1 – 2/28

Our Read-a-thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills. The focus of the Read-a-thon is for everyone to know we are committed to improving reading skills while having fun!  Last year we raised almost $20,000 to help with extra improvements for our new building.  This year we are raising money to support school subscriptions that enhance online student learning. Our Read-a-thon will be from Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 through Friday, February 28, 2022

You can sign up using our special school link below. A flyer is also being sent home We understand that, as parents, you have high expectations for the quality of your child’s education but also have limited time. That’s why we chose to hold a Read-a-thon. You will find this to be the easiest fundraiser possible. By simply activating your reader’s personal page and using the promotional tools found there, friends and family anywhere in the world can show their support for your reader by donating to our Read-a-thon. Your involvement in the Read-a-thon will help your child develop a lasting love of reading. We hope each one of you will activate your child’s personal page today!  Your child will get a prize just for signing up!
