Here comes Read-A-Thon!

Families, get ready to show your support for reading!

From May 22nd through June 2nd Elementary Schools across our district will participate in a Read-A-Thon to secure funding for our TK-5 music programs.

Middle School students will also participate by reading and raising money that will be granted back to each of their schools.

With Measure Y’s defeat, the Education Foundation feels the keen need to step in as advocate and benefactor of educational opportunities in our schools.  Now is the time to take action to ensure our schools can continue to offer music and other valuable programs to our children.

Read-A-Thon is a fun and equitable fundraiser that facilitates the positive effect of a shared vision.  Everyone in our community can get behind the value of reading.  With such clear benefits to our students, we are eager to promote this event!  Read-on, readers!

Give the Gift of Opportunity!
