Meadows Read-A-Thon

Join your classmates for the all-school Meadows Read-a-thon!


Starting May 10, we are putting our reading skills to work to raise money for the school library. Compete for special prizes as you read & raise alongside your friends. Every student can participate and help make a difference for our school! Here’s how:


1. Sign up:


2. Set your personal reading and fundraising goal.


Example: I will read 500 minutes during the Readathon. My fundraising goal is to raise $500 in donations family and friends who want to support my reading challenge and our school library.
3. Ask family members and friends to support your efforts and your reading challenge by making a donation on your Reader Page.
Please note: This Read-a-thon is different from a traditional "thon" where friend and family would pledge a small amount "per minute" or "per page". Instead, students should set a personal goal for themselves (i.e. 5 books, or 500 minutes, or 1 hr a day - however they choose to mark progress) and then ask family & friends to support their overall goal with a set donation.
