Read-A-Thon

February 26 – March 9

Grab a book! “Read-A-Thon” is coming!

From February 26 – March 9 almost every elementary school in the district will join the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation to raise money for TK-5 Music Education.

Elementary School Music is NOT funded by the state and costs our district $500,000 per year. The SMFC School District is facing massive budget cuts and TK-5 music could be lost.


We want to make sure music is preserved for EVERY student in our district.
Please join the effort to save music through Read-A-Thon, an educational, equitable, fun way to raise money for a good cause.


If you are a parent, look for your student’s personalized Read-A-Thon flyer the week of February 19th and help your student activate his/her reading page, track reading minutes online and invite friends, neighbors and family as reading sponsors.

If you are a community member, ask the children in your life if they need a reading sponsor or make a donation to the Ed Foundation directly right now, right here!


Thanks to our local libraries for sponsoring this event!
