Welcome to Read-A-Thon 2021!

This May MNS is participating in a Read-A-Thon!  The goal is to help our kids grow as readers while raising some much-needed funds for our school.

The majority of funds raised will go towards next year’s budget — and will help meet the needs of our children after a year of pandemic learning. Make your donation now!



STEP 1: 

Choose your Read-A-Thon adventure! The Read-A-Thon Calendar is best for younger grades (PK-2nd) while the Read-A-Thon Genre Challenge is better suited for older ones (3rd-5th) — but the goal is to make reading fun so whichever your child prefers is fine. We’ve also created a straight-forward, age-inclusive Read-A-Thon Log if you want to keep it simple.



Have your child choose as many activities from the Read-A-Thon Calendar as they would like, have them start stretching their reading muscles by choosing how many different types of books they hope to tackle during the Genre Challenge, or have them set a simple books-read goal.

Then: email friends and family to donate towards your child’s success. Sample emails can be found here.



Sit back and watch your children become life-long readers! And consider sending photos or videos of your child’s Read-A-Thon progress to info@mnspta.org so we can share them on our social media sites! Also, please take note of the below dates:
