Why a Read-A-Thon?2015ratlogo3

The Read-A-Thon encourages our children to excel in reading while raising supplemental funds for educational programs and materials at Winnona Park Elementary School. In one week, students gain exposure to excellent literature, while also developing reading skills and new reading habits. We hope that many children will sustain this frequency of reading
throughout the year and beyond.

Read-A-Thon 2016 Calendar
