2018 Readathon

The Readathon is an important fundraising activity in which PS11 students raise money for the school while reading!


Donate and pay your Readathon Pledge Online

We encourage friendly competition between students and classes and will track all class totals of minutes read weekly.

How it works

  • Find adult sponsors to pledge funds for each minute read and logged during the Readathon time frame. 
    We suggest 5-10 cents per minute.  Sponsor names and pledge amounts are written on the Readathon pledge form.  We can help you find adult sponsors if you do not have a sponsor.  Everyone can participate!
  • Write down all minutes you spend reading outside the classroom on the Readathon log.  Minutes spent reading for homework count!  (Pre-K, K and 1st grade students can include minutes adults read to them.)
  • At the conclusion of the Readathon period, all minutes are totaled on each student's log and pledges collected.  (Pledges can also be paid online via the school website.)
