Read-A-Thon 2019


About Read-A-Thon

The VES PTA sponsors an annual Read-A-Thon for students to promote and encourage a lifetime love of reading for all of our students as well as improve overall reading skills throughout the school. Whether you are in kindergarten and just learning to read, or are a proficient reader, the more you read, the more you learn. We encourage parents to read to their children or families to all read together.

The 2019 Read-A-Thon will take place February 11th to March 10th, ending with class celebrations. Here is this year’s informational flyer.

During the Read-A-Thon the VES library will be open before school starts (8:00 – 8:35 or 10:00 – 10:30 in case of snow delay) so that students have extra time to read.  We will need three (3) parent volunteers each morning to count student readers, monitor behavior and encourage reading. Please feel free to bring your child/children with you (even if they don’t attend VES). Sign-up to Volunteer here.
