We invite all PS 107 families to participate in the 4th Annual Read-A-Thon to help promote literacy and a love of reading with our students. 


The Read-A-Thon runs from February 15th through Sunday, March 4th. All reading during that time (including assigned reading) counts towards the Read-A-Thon. Parent/Guardian assisted reading is allowed for K and 1st grade. 

There will be prizes for top readers in each grade (K-5) as well as prizes for the top readers from the entire school! Prizes will be awarded in the form of gift certificates from our generous sponsor, Powerhouse Books, and "Scholastic Bucks" which can be used at the PS 107 Fall Book Fair.


In addition to fostering the love of reading, the Read-A-Thon also raises money to fund programs and activities at PS 107! Donors can pledge a certain amount per minute read or may make a flat pledge. Donations can also be made online


Attached are the Read-A-Thon directions, friends & family letter, reading log, and sponsor form. Please contact with any questions. All participation is voluntary, but welcomed!!!


This year’s Read-A-Thon is sponsored by Powerhouse Bookstore!  In addition to gift certificates, Powerhouse is offering 20% off on kids books purchased by PS 107 students between February 5 and March 3rd!  Just go to POWERHOUSE and say “ I buy this book for my Read-A-Thon”.
