Readathon Committee Members Needed and First Meeting next week!
Wed, Jan 9 10:39am
PS 372 -The Children's School

The 2019 Readathon Committee is looking for new members!

We need your help to plan this fun month-long event which celebrates reading while empowering students to participate in fundraising for PS 372.  Last year the Readathon raised over $16,000. The Readathon helped fund new classroom library books for every room at both sites and contributes  new titles to our school libraries each year. 


We are having our first planning meeting next week on Monday the 14th at 8:30 AM in the ICT cafeteria. Learn more about the event and sign up for a specific event task (like ordering buttons or pencils, or helping with communication blasts and managing volunteers). You can sign up to be a member to help and not be able to make this meeting. There will be other meetings and other ways to help.


If you are new to this event, here are the basics. The school community asks family, friends, and co-workers to sponsor students either for an amount per minute of reading or as a lump sum donation.


For the entire month of February, students participating in Ready, Set, Read! record their minutes (outside of the classroom) every day in their reading logs. Books count! Reading on a Tablet counts! Magazines count! Comics count! Newspapers count! Even homework reading counts!

Students who are not reading independently should include the minutes they are read to
by an adult. Every child who participates will receive a certificate.


We need volunteers to help get it off the ground again for this year. You can sign up here or email
