What 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.


How does it work?

From March 3-19, 2023

  • 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 20-24, 2023

  • 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.

Thank You!
