The Readathon is one of the PTA’s four main fundraising initiatives (along with the Spring Auction/Party, the Annual Appeal and Pizza Friday). If the PTA is able to reach our fundraising goals in each of these four efforts, then we will be able to continue to have free admission to our community events like Roots & Community, Movie Nights, the Valentine’s Day Dance and Arts & Science Day. We will also be able to continue to provide free lice checks, Field Day T-shirts and the school carnival, while funding programs such as Studios and Lunch Clubs, grade-wide enrichments like chess, opera and architecture, and providing teachers with mini-grants to enhance their classroom supplies.
No fundraising is required for participation in the Readathon, nor is it necessary to raise money in order to qualify for any of the milestone minute drawings or prizes. However, for those who are able to reach out for sponsors, a little from many goes a long way. Our fundraising goal for the Readathon is $16,000. We can achieve this goal if everybody who is able (and this is a great thing for kids to do too!) reaches out to a few friends, co-workers, and family members to support our children’s love of reading by sponsoring them in the Readathon.
