"Today a reader, tomorrow a LEADER."

OUR GOAL is to raise $15,000 and to have fun! The Read-A-Thon is a fun, eduactional way for students to use their love of reading to raise money for our school.  Donations will be used to purchase clasrrom resources (iPads, laminator, and poster maker) and to support teacher's professional development.
Please make sure to include the student(s) name in the comment section when making your donation.  Every donation helps!  With more than 600 students, if every student contributes, we will be able to make a huge differance in our school!
