Readathon Committee Members Needed
Wed, Jan 3 3:58pm
PS 372 -The Children's School

The 2018 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 $20,000 and helped fund new classroom library books for every room. 


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

Thank you,
