Thank you to everyone who has helped to support the 2021 Read-a-thon! We hope your child had a great time reading during the month of March.
Now that the Read-a-thon is over, the minutes have been tallied and we are pleased to report that students read for nearly 140,000 minutes this month. The money we raise from the Read-a-thon will go towards funding much-needed school supplies like PPE for teachers and students as well as helping Ms. Anderson, the TPES Library Media Specialist, recoup lost, damaged, or outdated titles from the media center that sorely need replacing.
Donations can be made online at https://tpespta.net/donations/read-a-thon/. Please donate and encourage friends or family to donate by Friday, April 16th. Any amount, whether it is $3 or $300 helps. Thank you!
We are excited to launch our 8th annual Read-a-thon event! It is our largest fundraising event and it gets the children excited to read!
In Read-a-thon, a child reads for a month to raise funds for the Takoma Park Elementary School PTA. Read-a-thon runs March 1 – March 26, 2021. Please encourage your child to read today!
