Read-A-Thon 2024

"spring into reading" graphicWhat is the Read-A-Thon?

The Read-A-Thon is our annual program sponsored by the CPES PTA. We want to encourage all our children to read more and fall in love with reading.

When is the Read-A-Thon?

March 1-17, 2024

How does it work?

From March 1-17, 2024:

  • Students read and keep track of their minutes on the included Reading Log, (and yes, reading with/to your children counts).
  • Students, with an adult’s help, should look for sponsors to pledge a set amount per minute/day, or a flat amount.
  • Adults should encourage children to read more. (You can keep doing this even after Read-A-Thon is over!)

From March 18-22, 2024:

  • Students collect pledges and complete their Reading Logs
  • Students return their Read-A-Thon packets (envelope, reading log, pledges) to their teacher
    • Cash or Check Pledges or Donations may be sent to school in the Reading Log envelope; or
    • Pledges may be paid by credit card using this Read-A-Thon form. Don't forget to send in those Reading Logs.

Are there Rewards? You Bet!

  • Every student who submits a reading log (including those without pledges) will receive at least $5 in Book Bucks to spend at the Spring Book Fair
  • Prizes for the classes and students who read the most minutes.

Since this is a fundraiser, where does the money go?

  • 100% of funds raised go back into our school!
  • Author visits
  • Books and other technology for the library and classrooms
  • Other ways the PTA supports the school, including field trips and teacher appreciation


We’re certain that with your help, this will be the most successful Read-A-Thon yet!  Please contact with questions.
