 Read-A-Thon is an annual program sponsored by the CPES PTA to encourage our children to read more and to get excited about reading! Please read here about how it works, how it raises funds, and what prizes we offer.

How does it work?

  • Between Mar. 4 - 19, students read and keep track of the minutes read.
  • Every. Minute. Counts! (asynchronous, reading to/with your child, group reading)
  • Students fill out a Reading Log (daily is easiest/best) with their minutes.
  • Reading Logs are a available in a variety of formats for your convenience:
    • A Google Form available in via the Library Google Classroom, 
    • PDF to fill out electronically or by hand, available HERE, or
    • Paper copies will be available for pickup during Library Pick-Up.
  • Between Mar. 20-26, students turn in their Reading Logs: via Google form; hand in to their teacher or at Library pick-up; or via email to
  • Collect and turn in pledges (see fundraiser details below).

Read-A-Thon is a fundraiser
