About Read-A-Thon

Welcome to our annual winter PTO fundraiser, the Bryant/Pattengill Read-A-Thon!

Rather than selling products to raise money, our students get to focus on READING – a win- win for our students and schools! Students will track their time spent reading (or being read to) to strive for a medal, win raffle prizes, and raise funds for our schools.

During Read-A-Thon days, your child should read as much as possible. Time spent reading BY parents/guardians/volunteers TO your child counts as well. For Bryant students, every 15 minutes of reading earns a raffle ticket. Pattengill students must read a 1/2 hour to earn a raffle ticket. Each ticket must be signed by an adult and returned to school, to be counted.

A raffle prize drawing will take place each day during Read-A-Thon. Some days feature double and triple drawings, so keep an eye on the Read-A-Thon calendar! Time spent reading also counts toward earning a Read-A-Thon medal. See the Read-A-Thon prize sheet to learn what it takes to earn a bronze, silver, or gold medal! All participating students will receive a pencil.

Raising money for our schools is an important part of Read-A-Thon. Please ask your family and friends to pledge money for the minutes your child spends reading. DO NOT allow your child to ask strangers.

Funds raised through Read-A-Thon help the PTO to provide classroom supplies and equipment, field trips, and fun and educational school events for students and families.

Have a Read-A-Thon question? Please contact readathon@bryantpattengill.org or your classroom teacher. Thank you for helping your child participate in the Read-A-Thon winter fundraiser!
