2022 Read-a-thon

Final Update:

We’re excited to announce that with the conclusion of the Read-a-thon, the students have done an AMAZING job and totaled 287,627 minutes read, meaning the school has smashed the overall goal of 200,000 minutes read! Our students are incredible!

And while the Read-a-thon for 2022 may be officially over, we hope you continue to encourage your kid(s) to dive into a book and discover the joys of reading.

We now hope you will take time to donate to the Read-a-thon in honor of the students for all their hard work, and share the donate link with any family or friends who would be willing to contribute to the Read-a-thon fundraising effort.

We are excited to launch our 9th 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 4 – March 31, 2022.  Please encourage your child to read today!

On this page, you will be able to find more information about our Read-a-thon event.
