Walnut Acres Read-a-Thon 2020
"Camp Out with a Good Book"

Pitch a tent in your backyard, grab those flashlights, and get ready to “Camp Out With A Good Book”! This year’s Read-A-Thon is a camping adventure, and will be held Nov. 18th – Dec. 2nd. The Read-A-Thon is a fundraiser that challenges students to use their most important academic skill, READING, to directly support our school. The money raised goes to sustain our PFC-funded initiatives such as reading and math specialists, science aides, and our STEM instructor. Please visit the PFC website for more information, and stay tuned for details on when to pick up your Read-A-Thon participation materials.
