Morrisville Elementary PTA

The ENTIRE read-a-thon team was supportive and constantly available to help us with any questions or issues that came up during our read-a-thon. We look forward to holding our 3rd read-a-thon next year and utilizing the new 'reading adventure' themes!

Bess Campbell Elementary PTO

Campbell Elementary Loved the Read-A-Thon! The parents were happy, the teachers were happy and the students were able to focus on reading!

Richland Elementary

It was a great success as well as all the other years! We are so thankful for this opportunity that your company gives us. We look forward to doing business with you again next year!


Sharon Elementary

Our Read-A-Thon was very successful! Started off with some organizational hiccups - 2 teachers were left out of our shipment and had a glitch with student info pulling correctly on a tracking page - other than that, very easy to manage and the kids had a blast. Thank you!


Garden Ridge Elementary

Read-A-Thon was an amazing experience. The students had so much fun and our students were so excited about reading! We surpassed our fundraiser goal and it was so easy! The program is so organized and carefully planned out. The read-a-thon team is available to answer every question along the way. We will definitely host another read-a-thon next year.


PS118 Maurice Sendak Community School

Thanks. The process was great overall.


Daulton Elementary School

It has been another fantastic year for our Read-a-thon!


Bess Campbell Elementary PTO

Another successful Read-A-Thon for Campbell Elementary! We love the focus this fundraiser puts on education and the simplicity of running the Read-A-Thon.


St. Mark Catholic School

This Read-a-Thon was a great fundraiser! It was easy to set up and run. The staff is friendly and helpful and the website is easy to use.
The only suggestion I have is please expand the reporting options. It would be nice to see who got the most donations or read the most by each day. Also when I see a kid's total I would like to be able to click on it and see the list of donations or minutes.
Overall this was a great experience and we will do it again. Thank you.

Bachrodt Charter Academy PTA

This was such an amazing fundraiser for our school! It was very easy to implement and the students and families were excited to participate. It would have been helpful for us to do more education for our school community prior to the start of the Read-A-Thon to get more families to participate in the fundraising aspect - this was the first time we had done an on-line fundraiser. All of the materials that were provided were very helpful and professionally done. I also got amazing support from Kari. We will definitely do this again next year! Thank you!!

Ashland Ranch Elementary School

I love that this program is online and that we don't have to handle the money. I really like that it can connect directly to social media. I think that it worked really well for those families that took advantage of this feature.

Parents-As-Leaders, Inc

This was the second Read-a-Thon for our school and the results were impressive.

It is an amazing fundraiser that lines up with our school’s core values by empowering each one of the participants and turning them into leaders of their own fundraisers. By being in charge of their personal pages, our students are learning important skills from using technology, to fundraising, working as a team and let’s not forget the most important one: they are reading!

The tools for promoting the fundraiser are really helpful and easy to use. Read-a-Thon is a great fundraiser for any school.


Parent Teacher Enrichment Group for Pinellas Prep

We LOVED this fundraiser! After one bad experience after another with the traditional fundraisers. We decided to try Read-a-thon. What a true pleasure it was from start to finish. The parents, teachers and even the students loved it. It was our best school wide fundraiser to date and raised nearly $20,000.00. We will never go back to the traditional fundraiser again!

Mountain View Elementary School - PTO

Read a thon went well. A little slower than last year, but still happy with our results. Only question is - would it be possible to get the business flyers sent out to us next time earlier than the other flyers? Our school is always behind on getting us the class lists, which pushes our timeline to solicit businesses back. Just a thought.

Thank you again for helping us with a successful fundraiser!

Peter Cooper PTO

I am in awe of this fundraiser! This was by far the best and most successful fundraiser our school has ever participated in. It was so unique and exciting to find a fundraiser that encouraged reading while raising money at the same time. It gave an opportunity for not just our PTO to raise money but the children and their families and friends to all come together for a great cause...our new playground! A big thank you to Kari Styne for being so accessible and helpful! We loved all the materials you sent! Everything is so well organized and easy to execute! Thank you!!!!

Peter Cooper PTO

Ringwood, NJ

PS 198

We enjoyed this fundraiser and our students did too. Will definitely do it again!

Garden Ridge Elementary

We love the Read-A-Thon. Our students read over 200,000 minutes and raising money while doing so is just icing on the cake. This is the easiest and most rewarding fundraiser our school has ever done. Thank you!



We loved it and will do it next year again

Normandy Elementary

A simple and exciting fundraiser that highlights family literacy and the importance of daily reading habits!!! Very excited that this will fully fund our school's One School, One Book program!

St Christopher School PTO

This may be available already but an FAQ would be great to have regarding simple questions. Overall we had a great experience so far with this fundraiser and we will certainly do it again!! Thank you.


Spring Creek Matanzas Charter

It was great for our first time. Has a great experience and I would do it again.

Rancho Gabriela Elementary School

We love how easy the read-a-thon is!!!! This is our second year using this company. Kari and Scott are amazing and so quick at responding. They helped me every time I had trouble.

Overall we're happy and will use you in the future. Thank you

JW Alvey Elementary School

We loved the Read-A-Thon. It was easy to setup up and run. The kids, parents and staff loved having a fundraiser that could be incorporated into the school day.

Kyrene de la Esperanza PTO

This Read-a-thon was awesome and the results created an amazing experience that will be very memorable and rewarding! Our Teachers, Readers, Parents, and Sponsors loved how their reading habits picked up, not just for prizes and rewards, but also to pick up a random book and immerse their imaginations in travel, animal life, and stories they could relate with. Overall, Read-a-thon was one of the best fundraisers we’ve ever done, and will do again. Thank you Kari for being with the Kyrene de la Esperanza PTO throughout this event!!! The only complaint during this event was some had payment issues, and some resolved those issues on their own and others just gave up. We would like to understand why and how to overcome these problems in the future.


Lumberton Primary School PTO

We had a wonderful experience with Read-A-Thon and look forward to doing it again next year!

Piedmont Community Charter School

This fundraiser is the best one I have ever been involved in-from start to finish, it was motivating for our students to read even more than they already do-plus we had so many families, friends, and local businesses contribute each day that helped us achieve our goal to raise money for our new playground. We are super excited because we will now be able to start construction on our new playground because of Read-A-Thon! Thank you so much!

Los Paseos Elementary School

Read-a-Thon created an educational fundraiser for our school.

Everette L. DeGolyer Elementary

Overall, the read-a-thon was a great experience! The staff was super friendly and helpful. I do appreciate how easy it was to execute!

St Ambrose PTU

It went well. Everyone was very helpful and answered our questions. It will be helpful from the back end to search students individually and also have pages with total reading minutes for the entire school.


Donaldson Way PTA

Everything went really well. We made more than we thought, and although there were a few tiny hiccups, they were solved quick enough, and we learned more for next year.

Parent Teacher Enrichment Group for Pinellas Prep

It was a good year again! We did better last year, but Hurricane Irma definitely hindered our fundraising. We will do a Read-A-Thon again next year!


Woodside Middle School

We love your company. Very easy to work with. You made running our Read-a-thon much easier and it was worth the fee!

Our Lady of Grace School

The Read-a-Thon was a great experience for our school. Parents, students, and teachers all loved the program. We coupled it with our Book Fair and made October a reading awareness month. As the administrator it was very easy to use and set-up. Our school exceeded what we anticipated we would earn! Easiest fundraiser I have ever done!

Parkview Elementary- Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD

Loved it! Will definitely do it again! Was the best and easiest fundraiser ever!

Oak Mesa Elementary

This is our 2nd year. What an easy and great fundraiser!


Sunset Primary

This was our first Read-a-Thon and it was such a success! It was so easy and fun! Our kids loved it and we were able to raise more for our school than we have in the past with "traditional" fundraisers! Win-win!

Sunset Primary PTA

Warren Elementary PTO

Another successful Read-a-Thon. Read-a-Thon is easy to conduct and well supported by parents.

Dora Small School

We have been thrilled with both the amount of minutes our students read during the read a thon

Evergreen Mill Elementary School PTA

Great fundraiser!!! Read-A-Thon staff were very responsive and helpful.

Walnut Heights Elementary

Our PTA loves that the Read A Thon fundraiser helps to foster our student's love of reading. We also love how painless of a fundraiser it is for our busy volunteers and how supportive the staff at Read A Thon are when we have questions or issues!

Cora Spencer Elementary PTA

As always, the read a thon was a great success for our school. I did have one parent with a suggestion that there not be a $15 minimum, based upon if a family has more than one child in that school, it is hard to get people to donate $15 to each child.

Service was great

Note from RAT:We wish we could lower the minimum but that would force us to reduce your profit percentage based on the transaction costs for smaller donation amounts.

Cora Spencer Elementary PTA

This was a fun and easy fundraiser! Thanks so much for your assistance. We raised money for our school while the kids did what they love to do....READ!


Rescue Elementary School

This was the most successful fundraiser our elementary school has ever had!

Rescue Elementary School

This was the most successful fundraiser our elementary school has ever had!

Lumberton Intermediate

This was such a wonderful experience for our campus! Our parents were impressed with our students' dedication to reading during this block of time and were gracious with their monetary support. This is definitely a fundraiser we would consider in the future.

Oaklawn PTO

This experience as fantastic! The read-a-thon staff was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions at all stages of the event! Being our first year using this fundraiser, we learned a lot and plan on doing this again. It was so easy!

Littleton School PTA

I loved that this fundraiser encouraged a love for reading in our students! Online donations made requesting sponsorship easy, the kids were excited about the prizes, and Kari was so helpful and prompt with any issues or questions that we had. We will definitely be doing this one again!

Foothill Elementary

Our read-a-thon went really well and most people found this online tool very helpful. It was hassle-free in terms of not collecting any money or counting minutes by hand. It was kid friendly.

Here are a couple ways to improve the experience:

1) Provide prizes for reading - Kids were disappointed to not see any visual motivation for reading, similar to those for receiving donations. It would have been so great to have prizes for their reading minutes. The purpose of our Read-a-Thon was to motivate reading at our school. And, so it would have been beneficial to give kids prizes for reading.

2) Some kids accidentally pressed the "10 minute", "20 minute," or "30 minute", timer for their reading session. There isn't a way to go back and undo it. Or, the child is not asked "Are you sure?" So there was some skewed minutes.

3) We raised over $12, 000 but our school only receives about $9500. It's sad to see $2500 go towards prizes and back to your company. It would be better for us to get more of a percentage back, instead of just 85%.

I will probably plan on participating on another Read-a-Thon again, but really wish some of the items above are changed.

Thank you,


Note From RAT: Thanks for the testimonial. Great suggestion with prizes for reading. We can't afford to give those prizes but many schools offer freebies like a movie pass, pajama day, etc, for reading goals.

Love your suggestion about the timer. We are adding an edit reading minutes option.

We do offer a no prize model that increases the cash you receive by 5%. You might consider that next time.


Greenbriar West Elementary PTA

For our first time doing a Read-A-Thon I think we did great. The children had fun reading and it was definitely fun watching the donations come in each day. Hopefully we will do this again in the future and do it even bigger and better. It was a fun experience for everyone. I would suggest plastic wristband for the students, as they are more durable and they can wear them for a longer time to advertise the read-a-thon and in turn get more sponsors. The Read-A-Thon Adventure is a very good idea for a fundraiser.


What a great way to encourage our children to read. Thank you for making it so easy.

Greenwood Mill Elementary PTO

This was a fabulous fundraiser. I appreciate how all of the papers came grouped together by teacher. Super easy!!


Hilltop Elementary

We loved how all the prep work was done for us and how easy this was to raise funds for our school. This was a great way to promote the joy of reading while raising funds for our school.

Oglethorpe Point Elementary School PTA

Our Read-A-Thon was great! The kids loved it and the teachers loved it! The only hiccup we had were teachers handing out the flyers to the wrong students! After getting that straight it was smooth sailing...

Kyrene de los Lagos Elementary School

Thank you Read-A-Thon! This is such a fun and important fundraiser for our school! Parents love this Read-A-Thon because they don't have to sell products, and it instills the love of reading. Students enjoy reaching their goal and Dreaming Gig!

Lagos Elementary School

Springboro Intermediate PTO

We were honestly blown away by how well this Read A Thon went for our school! Not only was the entire process fun and easy for our students, teachers, and parents, but the staff at the fundraising company was incredibly responsive to every one of our questions, requests, and suggestions regarding the website and the data. Thank you for an amazingly painless fundraising experience all around!

Frankford Township School

This was an amazing fundraiser. I had so many questions that were quickly and thoroughly answered by Kari Styne! Thank you so much. I look forward to doing this again.

Main Street School and Kindergarten Center

This Read-a-Thon was so much fun and turned out better than we had ever expected! What a great way to raise money - by reading!!! We will definitely be doing this again!

Helke Elementary School

The Read-a-Thon continues to be our best fundraiser - 3 years in a row! We can't wait to see how well we can do next year.

The Hansen Family

We have been thrilled with our Read-a-Thon experience. The process from beginning to end has been very smooth. I have already recommended your company to friends in other school districts.

Thanks for a great experience!

St Joseph School Fremont

We enjoyed using this website to promote, communicate and excite our Readers. I would like the option to customize and select our Minimum donation. The global $10 reduced our total sponsorship and in California things are so expensive and with the % taken by Read-a-thon we need to generate funds of over $10K. I would like reports to identify emails successfully sent. I would like to maintain dual emails, as we have cases where grandparents are involved in the caring of the kids during the day or parents are divorced as well and need dual communication. Thanks again!


Canongate PTO

This was our school's first year to participate in Read-a-thon and it has been a great experience! Your computer system is very user friendly - for the administrator, teachers and readers. One of the great things about this fundraiser is that you can raise thousands of dollars with just one volunteer, the administrator. Most other fundraisers our school has done in the past require a lot of volunteers to raise an equivalent amount of money. The parents and family members of the readers also love the fact that children are learning while they raise money. Thank you!!


Redwood Elementary

We like the new web design. Easy to access and know what we are looking for. Had complaints from parents regarding minimum amount to donate. Administrators really enjoy that everything is done on the website, though.

Lackland Elementary

We did amazing for a small military school. Everyone should take advantage of doing a read-a-thon. It was simple and effective.

Village Elementary Parents Club

We were very pleased with the ease of doing this kind of fundraiser and the results were amazing. We exceeded our goal so far by $500 and hope that some further donations come after the end date. Thank you for helping us encourage our students to read and helping make fund raising for our school fun.

Lowell Elementary PTSA

We met our goal! The kids read more than we ever imagined and we were kinda surprised that we raised as much as we did!


JF Dulles Elementary

We loved our experience with Read-A-Thon! Thanks for making fundraising so easy!


Sunset Primary

This was our second Read-a-Thon and we loved it! So easy and the support we received was wonderful! The only suggestion we would have, is adding a line about accepting cash donations at school that can be credited to reader accounts.


International Leadership of Texas-NRH

Fundraising for books was such a great idea and great way to build up our school library. I believe people are willing to give more knowing it's going toward their child's education. I fell short of my goal for the classroom guided reading books we need, so plan on doing another one this spring.

Bradoaks Elementary

We picked this fundraiser for two reasons. We wanted to encourage reading at our school and because this was easier than other fundraisers that we have tried. The ReadAThon company didn't take such a huge chunk of our profits and it was super easy to use. The work was done for us and all we had to do is promote it! Great fundraiser!

International Leadership of Texas, Keller

Such a great opportunity to help raise money for books! We love the Read-A-Thon!!!

Samuel L Gravely Elementary

We were able to come pretty close to our goal and are happy with the simplicity of the program. We will definitely have another Read - a - thon in a few years.

Henry P. Mohr PTA

Read-A-Thon was such a great, easy to run fundraiser for our school. Our PTA wasn't sure how it would turn out and we guessed very low on our budget for this event. WE were surprised that we made over 5K more than we anticipated! Thank you for the quick turn around on paperwork, for all of the support setting it up. Our teachers were pleased with the simplicity of how it ran.

We will spread the word to other schools in our district about this easy to run fundraiser and we will gladly use it again in the future.

Thank you again,

Henry P Mohr PTA

Jefferson Elementary School PTA

I think the read-a-thon was a great fundraiser. The only suggestion that I have is to note on the flyers that cash donations can be sent to the school as it was difficult relaying the message to our parents.

White Oak Primary

This was the first year for our school to participate in a Read A Thon fundraiser. We were very pleased with the result. It was efficient, easy to manage, fun, and our profit was more than expected! We will participate again!!
White Oak Primary School

Copper Creek Elementary

This fundraiser was very simple to run and put on. We made good money for our beginning of the year kick off. but decided for next year we will wait til spring to do as a final kick off to the school year and it will help us have more time to promote the event.

Mays Chapel PTO

This was aMAYSing for Mays Chapel!

Super easy to use and the kids loved it. Thanks for a great experience.

MHSA Playground Fundraiser

We just received our last payment from Read A Thon. We wanted to wait to leave this testimonial until we had finished the entire process. We had a wonderful experience throughout the entire set up, management, and close out. Any technical issues we had where taken care of quickly. We have run many fundraisers and this was by far one of the easiest! And the students really enjoyed participating. We would definitely do this again in the future.

Alvin S. Hatch Elementary

Our Read-A-Thon went really well! The Read-A-Thon folks were super helpful anytime I had a question and answered really quickly. Also we got started really late (*I* got started really late), and they shipped out materials ASAP to get us going. Super customer service. Thanks!


Jeannette McKee Elementary

This fundraiser was so simple to facilitate and easy to track. It was a welcomed change to selling the same items over the years. Not to mention, we raised just as much money! Highly recommended!


Trinity PTA

We couldn't be more pleased with the Read-a-thon! The students were excited about reading and sharing their love of reading with others. The dashboard made the experience of monitoring the progress painless and we made more money than anyone thought possible given our demographics.

Union Elementary PTO

Had a great experience, the only downside was the material that went home with the students needed more information about the event on it.

Franklin Monroe Elementary

The Read-A-Thon was a great way to raise money and support education at the same time.

Live Oak Middle School

This was the easiest fundraiser ever!


Harrison Intermediate School

I loved using your Read-a-thon. It was just great that all the tracking was done and so easy to keep up with the status of our event. One problem I had was with the Cash Donations tab. When I tried to submit payment the transaction did not go through. I would either get no message, just a blank screen, or a message saying my bank card had expired, which it had not. Both, Scott in your tech support group and Kari Styne were very proactive in helping me process the transactions. Your support materials are excellent, as well as your customer support.

Parkway Elementary School

Our first Read-A-Thon was a great success! A fundraiser that encouraged the joy of reading while raising money for new technology in our school!

Positive Direction Basketball

This was a great way to encourage our basketball teams to read and we raised money along the way!

Wilburton Elementary

We were extremely pleased with this fundraiser and look forward to doing it again in the future. Our students came each day ready to read or have the teacher read to them. We also had community leaders come into our PK-3rd grade classes and read to them each day at 2:00 for three days.

Our entire community got behind this fundraiser and we loved it!

Thank You,

Miss Gilmore

Swans Creek Elementary

This was an easy fun way to make money. Our parents always say..."I would rather just write a check than buy something I don't want!"... this was a chance to do that while promoting reading! Double win! Angela Roth Swans Creek Elementary President.

Reed Elementary PTA

The only comment was people wanted the option to donate less than $15 online..., but as the admin I'd say keep it the way it is!!! ;)

South Elementary

Thus far it has been a great experience. We would certainly do it again.

South Elementary

The program was great. The students were excited and it was limited work on an already overloaded staff and faculty.

Knoxville Elementary PTO

This was our first time doing a Read-a-Thon and I think it went great, and we plan to use it again in the future to help support our Elementary PTO!


Lackland PTSO

It was great!


STAR Academy PS 63

It was super easy and it was great way for parents and families to support the school readers! It is our biggest fundraiser of the year!


New Prague Middle School

You made doing the Read-a-thon very easy and it was user friendly. We had a great experience and did well our first time. We will be looking into continuing this every year!


Lee F. Jackson PTA

We absolutely loved the ease of use of the website and the customer service support.

Two suggestions:

1) The free bracelets for the children really should be upgraded to plastic ones. The paper ones are too much of a hassle to put on the children.

2) There should be a place dedicated to showcase non-monetary sponsors. Not all companies support a Read-a-Thon with money and they should still be recognized. A smaller button with no link or a logo that appears in a different location would be ideal. A small fee can be paid for the activation if necessary.

Park Layne for United Way of Clark, Champaign & Ma

What a great way to fundraise for your own school or a charitable organization! We wanted to raise money to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library which recently came to our community so decided to try this as our charitable fundraiser. It could not have been easier. I only had to upload staff and students and the rest was taken care of. Everything was super organized, no money to handle, no goods to distribute and kids were reading like crazy. We offered a small incentive for our top readers and fundraisers (throwing a pie in a staff members face) and talked it up on announcements each day. We raised almost $5,000 in just two weeks. Prizes came packaged by teacher and teachers said it was very easy from their standpoint as well. We plan to do a Read-a-Thon each year in conjunction with Read Across America week and donate the money to this great cause, improving literacy in our community.

Leetonia Elementary School

For our first time in such a small district I feel we did a great job, We should make 6,000.00. No other principal in this district has made this much money. We are in a very poor district in Columbiana County. I would love to do a Read-A-Thon again next year. It was very easy. One thing I would do differently is send out letters to businesses a lot sooner.

Thank you for all the help and support!

Eagle View Elem Pequot Lakes PTA

This is our 2nd read-a-thon with you and we love it! It's so easy and takes almost no volunteers to run.

United Children's Learning Academy

Read a thon was a great way for our school to raise money. The website and company was soo easy to use and I couldn't be happier about how it all turned out.

Brighter Horizons Academy

An easy and no fuss way of promoting reading and raising funds! We were pleasantly surprised by the amount the students raised in such a short period of time. We will definitely use Read-a-Thon again in the next school year to raise funds for our Library programs!Thank you!

H. Clarke Powers School

A little learning curve at the start as this was our first Read-A-Thon but overall, it was easy!


This is such an easy fundraiser for the school and contributors. The online pages and social media ease make donations easy!


Middlesex Elementary School

We met our goal of $5000.00. For a first time project, we felt this was very successful. We will be doing this again.

Middlesex Elementary School

This was a great program and I think we did well for the 1st time. We will be trying again next year.

Hilton Elementary School

Our school had a wonderful experience with the Read-a-thon. It was so easy and the students loved to see who was logging the most minutes read. Thanks!

PS 159

We absolutely loved having the Read-A-Thon! We got such positive feedback from the parents and teachers. My only suggestion would be with the teacher timer, if could have it make a noise when time is up that would be really helpful. Sometimes our teachers are just so busy that they forget to look at the timer and could have added more minutes to reading if they would have know the timer was up. We can't wait till our next Read-A-Thon!

University Park Elementary Library

I loved how easy it was to promote and manage! I am so impressed by the power that raising funds through the Internet, has given us. I was SOO happy every morning when I looked at the new results!

One way I would improve it is by giving parents an instructional sheet on how to start, how things will look differently on a phone than on the laptop when they look for sponsors, etc. Many of them use phones instead of a computer at home. Some of the families in Alaska do not have Internet at home, they only have cell service. How much percentage will go to the child for buying extra prizes, etc. That is something I had to take time to explain to students in a library lesson, which was fine, but I could not reach the parents to explain. Thank you!

Note from RAT: Thanks for the great suggestions and so glad you loved the program. We will discuss your suggestions at one of our upcoming meetings.

Arroyo Del Oso PTA

Our Read-A-Thon went better than we expected it would! We made over a thousand dollars more than we projected in our budget!! This program was very easy to use and our students enjoyed having their own web page. The kids took pride in their reading efforts and were motivated by earning Rat Bucks.

Manuel A. Salinas Creative Arts Elementary

It was really fun watching all the donations come in and seeing the reading minutes go up. It was lots of fun.


Stanton-Smith Elementary

We earned the same amount of money we usually earn with a book fair, but without all the hassle. Love it!

I have been very pleased with your customer service. Replies to my emails are prompt and I am usually able to talk with someone on the phone when I call. <

The reporting features are awesome!

Community Problem Solvers

We loved hosting a Read a Thon!! Everything went very smooth.

Thank you so much for helping us raise money for a great cause.

Sugarmill Elementary

This was an awesome fundraiser. I will definitely do it again next year. It was beneficial to our students and a great way to raise money. The teachers loved it. I have recommended it to all of the media specialists in our county.


St. Ann Catholic School

This has been a great fundraiser for our school! The principal and teachers did an amazing job of getting the kids excited and reading. The families loved the opportunity to share a fundraiser with family they normally can’t “sell” to. The Read-A-Thon immediately followed a very successful fundraiser and we were still able to blow our goal out of the water. (Our expectations were low after realizing we had timed the 2 fundraisers back-to-back.). We will definitely do a Read-A-Thon again!!!


Roots Public Charter School

Roots Public Charter School is delighted with the results of the read-a-thon. It was a magnet for engaging students to read and get sponsors. It also encouraged community businesses to support and advertise through this activity. We ran our read-a-thon for a month. Our small school of students (115 Pk3-5th grade)read a total of 7,890 leisure minutes for the month and we raised $5,060.

Each Monday, the students who created their read-a-thon pages, or recruited sponsors, and read leisurely were awarded lunch with the Principal. On the last day of the read-a-thon, those who had at least $50 from sponsors and read at least 100 minutes were awarded bowling with the Principal.

Roots plans to do a read-a-thon every November.

Westwood School

What a FANTASTIC and simple way to encourage reading and raise money!

Melridge Elementary PTO

Read-a-thon went great. We will likely do this again next year.


Richard Gordon PTA

A great fundraiser - very easy, and who doesn't want their kids to read!

Marietta Center for Advanced Academics

This is a fundraiser the school will likely try again in the future. This was an initial test run and it seemed to work well. I would love to see us do it again in a bigger way. Thank you for your help with getting us from the start to the finish line!


GLOBE Charter School

Thank you to all who helped with the first Read-A-Thon! The kids did a great job!

Mile High Academy

This fundraiser was AMAZING! It was super easy, and extremely successful! I never dreamed that we would raise over $3,000 for our small school in such a short time, with so little effort!

Our experience was incredible. The read-a-thon staff were very friendly, helpful, and prompt in their replies, particularly Kari!

Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Day School of Whitestone

This is by far the most effective fundraiser bringing academia and fundraising togther! This is our second year participating and wehave made it an annual highlight.

West Melbourne Elementary School for Science

Read a Thon was a great success!! It was fabulous seeing the whole school drop everything and read. The fund raiser was easy to set up and a breeze to run! Thanks.

Connolly School PTA

Our experience with your company was great. The ladies I spoke to were very helpful


Wake Academy

To start: We LOVE this method of fundraising! It is simple, easy to promote and definitely offers families and friends a feel good way to support our school.

For just 30 students, the fact that we were able to raise an average of over $150 per student is amazing. Much better than any other fundraiser we have looked at trying.

All in all, great fundraiser that went smoothly and we will use again!

W. H. Ford School

Thank you for all you have done to help organize and run our Read A Thon.


W.H. Ford School

Regina, SK, Canada


William McKinley Elementary Booster Club

Hi there! You guys made it super easy to have this read-a-thon. Thanks for everything! Liz



Thank you. This was a very good experience.

Immaculate Conception Catholic School

Our Read-a-Thon went well. We were delighted with amount of money that was raised, without selling overpriced products! Reading sessions were held in class and readers and were intrigued with the program.

Therese Guimaraes

Beagle Elem PTO

Have more of a library of documents explaining it to parents, ways to increase donations and pledge sheets.

Have a person that supports the schools before and during the event, to help give ideas on how to make it successful.


Hilltop Home and School Association

We love the Read-a-Thon, very user friendly and great earning potential.

Auburn Hills Christian School

This was a great fundraiser for our whole school project: an aquaponic, organic vegetable garden!

Polaris K-12

It was a great success! My students loved tracking their minutes and building their reading stamina. I did get a lot of feedback from parents that setting their child up was confusing and so they were not able to do it. As a teacher, I would like to see what the student set up process looks like so I can talk to parents trouble shooting it.


Chesterfield Academy

We love having the Read-A-Thon each year! As a small, privately owned preschool it can be hard to raise any significant amount of money; the Read-A-Thon triples what we can raise using other typical fundraisers. Our families respond to the ease of this fundraiser and the fact that it is education based.

As the administrator I would like to be able to go into a specific teachers class from my dashboard and log minutes. Currently, I have to either log a session for the whole school or log in as that teacher. Not all of our teachers have an Ipad or other device in their room, so as the administrator it would be nice if that were easier to do from my page. Also, the teachers request that they see the messages left for their kids on their classroom page. Individual pages have the messages and our group page, but each classroom having their messages would be encouraging for the teachers.

Note from RAT: Great suggestions. I will bring them up in our next planning session and will probably implement them.

Westwind Elementary

This was a great experience!

Hooks Elementary

This was one of the best and easiest fundraisers.

Leon Springs Elementary

This was an easy, effective fundraiser!

Pine Island Elementary

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fundraiser! No selling!!! Enough said!!

Scotland Scotties

This was our first year attempting a Read-a-Thon. We were pleasantly surprised with the turnout and anticipate doing this again next year!


Watkins Stars

I'm extremely pleased with the results of our first Read-A-Thon. Very user friendly platform and parents did a great job helping their children get sponsorship. Our Pre-K students read (or were read to) over 50,000 minutes in two weeks! I can't wait to do this again next year!

Boonville Elementary

This is our first read-a-thon. We feel it's gone smoothly and we are happy with the results. Kari, our customer service rep, was amazing. She answered all of our questions quickly and efficiently. Our teachers have commented on how much they've enjoyed the read-a-thon and how motivating it has been for students.

Harmony Science Academy-Garland

I really like the easiness of the Read-A-Thon. It is practically set up for you. However, the only challenge I ran into which affected the money raised is getting our elementary parents to set up accounts/send out sponsor emails. So suggestions, such as possibly having parents send 5 or so emails to school with the child and we manually set up may be helpful.

St. Philip Neri Catholic School

We raised more money than I had thought possible while promoting reading with our students. I heard from several parents that they enjoyed this program, not only because it was so easy for them, but also because they loved that their kids were excited about reading.

Grand Avenue

Grand Avenue School is absolutely thrilled and amazed at the results of our first ever GRAND READ-A-THON! We couldn't have done it without you. All of our readers and donators should celebrate our successes. Teamwork is the key to success!


Summit Academy

We really enjoyed the read-a-thon. The kids and staff seemed to be excited!

Brooklyn Arts and Science Elementary School

Our Read-A-Thon went great.Thanks to your team for being supportive and extremely helpful. We are looking forward to participating again.

Marshall Elementary PTA

I think the overall experience was great! It was a great way to get students invested in reading.


San Fernando Valley Academy

I love this program, i just wished I knew how to get more involvement.


Eagle Bay Elementary

Super easy to set up and administer. We will for sure hold another in the future!


The Read-a-Thon was an easy and hugely successful way to raise money to purchase books for our summer reading project! Our goal was to raise $3300, and we raised over $3,500! The interface for the dashboard was easy and helpful along the way. It is so nice to have the copies mailed and sent to you as well as organized by classroom. Kari was very helpful throughout the process as I had many questions. We are planning to hold the Read-a-Thon next year to raise money for another endeavor.

Pomeroy Elementary

Hello The Read A Thon went fantastic! We would like to have more tools in Spanish made available as we have parents who have English as a second language. Materials geared toward special education as well would be beneficial as we now have that population. Our school really got behind this, we had a book sale at a local bookstore, guest reader and exceeded our plan by almost $2,000!


South Arbor Academy

For our first time we raised over $3,700.00, this is amazing.

I look forward to hearing from teachers and students how we can improve for next year.

Thank you,

Cheryl Kinsler Greenough at South Arbor Academy

Casa de Oro Elementary PTA

Thank you so much for providing a fun and educational fundraiser! We love how easy to navigate the website was, and also the materials provided. We will definitely do this again!

Miami Children's Museum Charter School

MCMCS loves Read-a-Thon!!!

Logan Elementary PTO

Our Read-A-Thon was great! It was easy to disseminate information to our students, teachers, and parents. The various reports available were very useful in promoting competition between classes. I would like a way to be able to sort individual donations by date.


Beech Springs Intermediate School

The Read-A-Thon was a great experience and unlike any other fundraiser our school has ever participated in. It was easy on the teachers, and the students loved being able to pick out their prizes in the prize store. It was also nice that each child got a prize just for setting up their reader page. We had a great turnout, and we will be participating in the program again next year!

Longwood Elementary School

With this being our first experience with our school. We feel like this was a huge success! We love how seamless your program is. The one thing that we wish you would bring back is the promo video with the mouse. We feel like it is more appealing.

Betty Morgan Scholarship Fund

Thanks for helping run a successful and easy read-a-thon. We will use it again for sure!

7th District Elementary PTA

Thank you for this exciting opportunity! We were able to raise money for our classroom libraries and it was so easy to do! We look forward to sharing our new books with our students and continue to promote successful readers throughout our school!
Thank you Read-A-Thon!!

Norman Rockwell PTA

Thank you, our first read-a-thon went really well! It was kind of an experiment so I was pleasantly surprised at how much we raised. Kari, especially, was super helpful--every time I called with questions or emailed, it was her who responded.

Again, thanks for everything!

Myriam Pollock
Norman Rockwell Elementary

Picotte Elementary

We loved the pre-printed documents and how easy it was for the teachers to add minutes and for the parents to share the link to family members and collected donations.

Deer Creek Elementary

We had a good first experience with Read-A-Thon. The most important thing was our students read over 62,000 minutes! Read-A-Thon has proven to be a great piece in our goal of building a culture of readers at Deer Creek. In the future, I would like to see a bank of instructional tutorials on using the site. For instance, a video of students spending their RAT Bucks, etc. The support has been great. We will definitely consider doing this again next year.

Gale Student Council

Easiest fundraiser I've ever done! Kids loved doing it!

Royal ECC

Fantastic way for my PK and K students to raise money for projects!!

St. Anne School

This was our first time doing the Read A Thon. What an easy to navigate program. I could see so much information about the minutes read and the money raised. I received a lot of support from the company which made everything so much easier. We will definitely participate again!!

Shea Parthun
Saint Anne School

Fullerton Elementary PTA

So easy to use and so organized!!!

Silverdale Elementary School

Fantastic fundraiser with very little effort on our part!

Wells Elementary School

We had a great read-a-thon, all the money goes to our teachers for supplies in there classroom. Thank you.


Manara Academy

This is an amazing fundraiser that always keeps our kids and parents engaged! Thank you!

Casey Elementary

This was our 1st time hosting a Read-A-Thon and we think it went VERY well! We are excited to make this an annual event and increase our fundraising goal for our school's library. Thank you for making the process easy and user friendly. We have received lots of positive feedback from our school's families. Thank you! Sincerely, John Garcia Casey Librarian


Martin Walker Elementary PTA

I loved this program it was so easy to administer. I think the one thing I would work on for next year is to try to make it more competitive here on campus. We did not know what to expect so we didn't push it as hard as we could have.

Kirksey Elementary

We really enjoyed participating in the read-a-thon. It was so easy to do and everyone was extremely helpful with any questions we had.

Luther Jones Elementary School

This was the best and easiest fundraiser I have ever been involved in. The people at the Read-A-Thon customer service - helpdesk are amazing. Keri was my contact and every time I had a question she was always so nice and quick with a response. The kids loved it. the parents loved it and so did all the teachers.

Allen Avenue Elementary PTA

This was the easiest fundraiser we've hosted. It practically runs itself! The materials were sorted and ready for classroom distribution. I saved hours of volunteer time by running this read-a-thon.

St. Ambrose School

The Read-A-Thon was a fun and easy fundraiser for our school!



For our first time it went great! The easy of use was nice. Looking forward to next year and building it up more.

Ritter School

Went well, it was a great experience.

New Franklin Elementary School

You have wonderful staff who are very informative and supportive. Kari was wonderful.

Woodall Public Schools

What a great fundraiser!!!!!

Weddington Elementary

All in all we enjoyed our experience with read a thon. It would have been nice to get a few extra wrist bands because not all of our students got one even though they had a take home sheet. That was our only problem besides helping parents and community members understand what the read a thon was all about and being willing to invest in it.

McDonald Elementary School

Considering this was our first attempt at an online fundraiser AND the fact that we were hit by Hurricane Matthew and missed eight school days, we did surprisingly well. Kari Styne was extremely helpful and patient with ALL the questions I had. She always responded quickly and positively.

From the very beginning, this has been such an enjoyable and stress free experience. The printed personalized letters were very impressive and the donation pages the students created with their picture in the video was adorable. The report choices were so helpful in keeping our students informed on our progress during morning announcements. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Eagleswood Elementary

This was such a amazing fundraiser. It really got kids more interested in reading more!

Robin Hill School

We loved this experience. Thank you for helping make this a successful event for our school.


Hill Elementary PTA

Hands down the best fundraiser we have ever utilized! So easy to use and Customer Service was BEYOND helpful!

Thank you thank you thank you! We are so grateful!!!


This was a great fundraiser. It was easy to do because the Read-a-Thon team helped with every step of the way.


Sidney Lanier Vanguard Orchestra

I loved how simple and easy this process was. It's a great idea and I really like the paperless aspect of it!

Jackson-Milton Elementary

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this way. All of my materials came organized and personally addressed to each of my students. This was our first year hosting a Read-A-Thon, but this will definitely become something that we do annually!

Sonoran Science Academy-Broadway

Having the read-a-thon for an extended period was a big improvement in our donations. Thanks to all those who participated!

It went well. This was a great fundraiser for our school. Thank you.


Battiest Elementary

It was great and easy! Thank you!

Sory Elementary Library

WE did not have an opportunity to have a Kick Off celebration, and then our staff meeting was cancelled. These two factors really got us off to a slow start. We will be trying again in the Spring.

Overall, a good experience with you.

San Fernando Valley Academy

The teachers felt it was a great way to raise money and we will definitely try to do it once per year. We just need to build up parental and student support.

Clear Lake Christian School

It was easy. Read-A-Thon Staff were helpful many times and fast to respond.

Rising Sun Montessori School

This is our first year doing a Read-a-Thon. We didn't do a lot of heavy promoting, mostly internal with our students. We only hung up the posters provided in the kit, did a few postings internally and on our Facebook page. Overall, this was the biggest fundraiser for our school, so we will continue to host Read-a-Thons hereafter and will increase the way we promote the event, getting our students more involved as well as the community.

Richmond Academy

We are so happy to have found Read-a-thon. It was a simple and yet effective way fundraiser. We are one step closer to our goal of buying a new school bus.


Word of God Academy

I've been thrilled with the customer service experience I have had with RAT. I had a few small problems that I emailed about and they were solved almost instantly.

I LOVE the new option to do away with prize center, which allowed me to reward my students in more creative ways, and allowing us to use more of our money.

Overall the RAT is a fantastic experience for just about everyone involved!

It is a simple way to raise more money than any of my other efforts while focusing on what is really important- students reading!

Oak Ridge PTA

Thank you very much for you help kicking off our first Read-A-Thon! It was kind of a last minute decision for us and it still turned out well. We hope to have another one next year and maybe make it an annual event!

Thank you again!

Jordan Linnenkugel
Oak Ridge PTA
Lubbock, Texas


Great way to earn money for PTA and get kids reading!

Everything seemed to work well for us. Your company helped us along the way. Next step is wrapping things up.

Very fun experience for the students and a great way to have a fundraiser and make it educational.

Herma S. Simmons Elementary

It was an awesome way to fundraise! Looking forward to doing it again soon!


Ticasuk Brown Elementary

The students and I enjoyed the read-a-thon. I will be doing this fundraiser again next school year, never have I found something so easy for both the students and myself.


Fort White High School

We are very happy with our results. Our principal promised that if we met our goal, then he would dye his hair for a day.

The class that raised the most gets to pick the color. So, we are going to have a pizza party with our Top Readers and Top Raisers and dye his hair. We are going to pass out prizes at the party so it should be a great day.

Banyan Elementary PTA

This was our first Read-a-thon and it was great. Super easy to set up and manage. Some feedback that we got from parents was they wished for easier access to the students rather than having to go through the set up process every time. Other than that it was great and the kids are excited to go shopping.

Thank you!

Sand Ridge Elementary

Everything went well, very easy to set and everything that we needed was provided. Would definitely do it again next year

Norfolk Highlands Primary

I love how helpful the staff is. Every step, I had someone contacting me to make sure I had everything I needed. Great!


Forrest Elementary PTA

Our Read-a-thon went very well, despite our lack of full student body participation. We earned money rather quickly, and our students began benefiting immediately as well (earning Rat Bucks). We would suggest adding the option for individuals to submit a donation to sponsor a teacher's entire class (which would enable each student in the specified class to receive equal donation credit and earn Rat bucks) . We had a grandparent who desired to donate to a whole class, and it was very tedious and time consuming to search for each student's name then individually input equally divided cash amounts.

Sory Elementary Library

We LOVED the simplicity of this fundraiser! Thank you!

Glen Haven Elementary

We plan to do this again next year!

Wilburn PTA

Our read-a-thon went well. It was a great way to jumpstart reading and fundraising at our school. We can't wait to host another one!

This program was so easy to run, and we had so much fun. We will use the system again next year and hope to raise even more. Thank you to the staff at R-A-T for all the help and patience as we worked our way through the program!

Simi Valley Adventist School

Sugar Hill Elementary

i thought your website was easy to use, and thought it was a cute idea.

we may try you again next year!

Zane North PTA

Thank you to the staff of Read-A-Thon! It was very easy to manage the website during this time and customer service was always nice, pleasant, and questions were always addressed in a timely manner. Thank you for all of your help! Also, the printing material looked fabulous!

Melrose Elementary

We Love Read-a-Thon!


St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School

Our inaugural Read-A-Thon was a big hit with our students. We plan to host a Read-A-Thon at the start of each school year using We were pleased with the support we received to troubleshoot system bugs and we look forward to a more productive run next school year.



I have been so very impressed with Read-A-Thon since I first contacted them about doing a fundraiser! How they handle everything takes so much off the organizers! I loved how they sent everything in labeled packages, with dates for handout, as well as how easy the website was to navigate. The families and staff were very supportive and made running it very fun and stress free. I will definitely plan another one for next year!

Little Tots Montessori

This was the EASIEST fundraiser I have ever personally been involved with. Not only is there very little work to do to promote it, but the families who did get involved actually came and participated by reading to their child's class.

Next time we will try to get more families involved though because not even half of our center families participated...imagine what we could do if at LEAST half of them did!!

Holy toledo!! So exciting!!!

Giberson 4th Grade!

I cannot believe we made as much money as we did! Thank you for the great opportunity!!!

Lot Whitcomb Elementary School

This fund raiser was easy to administer and our community liked it. Students were happy to read and participate.


This was a great experience and fun and easy fundraiser for our school!!!! We loved it!!!

Belle Plaine Elementary

Read-a-thon was a great experience for our school. The staff was very helpful. The website was easy to maneuver through. We will do read-a-thon again.

Naomi Pasemann Elementary

This was my first time running the read-a-thon and I had a few hiccups. I feel I learned a lot, but was disappointed in our total :/. I would love if the starter kit was an auto ship once all classes have been entered to ensure that it arrived before the start date. I didn't realize I needed to order it and did not receive it until the end of the week in our first week of the read-a-thon. Overall, I think the idea is great and hope next year will be better!

Classical Conversations Sacramento

Great program.

Classical Conversations Sacramento

Great program.

Walkersville Elementary

I thought the Read-a-thon went well. I loved the booklet that was sent out with the calendar of dates for when to begin things and send home the papers. Very organized. I would love to see a better kickoff video that appeals to both primary and intermediate grades.

Heritage Elementary Archery

This is an awesome fundraiser. Your process is so easy and guided. The customer service support is great as well. Everyone that we have dealt with have been great. Thank you for Read-A-Thon!

Xenia Preschool

I was very pleased with our read-a-thon for our very first fundraiser ever!. My building is a preschool building and we are just introducing families to a positive school experience and this one was easy and educational! Thank you!


Neblett Elementary

I must say, this has been the easiest fundraiser I have been associated with since I started here at Neblett Elementary.

Pomeroy PTA

This was a great first experience for us. We will definitely do this again and have it on the calendar to do it the fall of the new school year 2017.

Perdido Elementary/Middle School

This was a very "do-able" fundraiser that motivated our students to read to help our school raise money for our library - a definite "win-win" for any school librarian!!

Children's Synergistic Learning Collaborative

We enjoyed the read a thon for the second year in a row!

We were glad to have the option of no prizes this year.

Queen of All Saints

The students thoroughly enjoyed our first Read-A-Thon. We look forward to hosting another one next year.

Ben Franklin Elementary/Junior High

Our read-a-thon experience at Ben Franklin was fantastic. This is the second one that we have done and it was bigger and better than the last. Looking forward to the next one.

San Antonito Elementary School

I was very easy and the children loved it!

Aire Libre Elementary School

It was a great experience! We are looking forward to doing it again.

St. Bartholomew School

Our Read-A-Thon went very well for our first time. The students seemed to enjoy it. The only difficulty we had, was that some parents forgot about it after a while.

Ridge Christian Academy

We would love to do another Read-A-Thon. The support we received was awesome.

Messiah Lutheran Preschool

This was a seamless, wonderful experience! Very easy to set up and raise money. Extremely impressed with the process and will continue to do it for years to come for Messiah. Thank you!

P.S. 273

This was our first attempt at running a Read-a-Thon. I think we did well. We need a little help in the area of explain to the parents how to set up their child's page.

Bethel Christian School

I thought this fundraiser was very user friendly! A very easy way for my library to raise funds. The prizes aren't the best but I can understand the need to not have expensive things so we can make the most as possible on the fundraiser.


Our Read-a-Thon was a success!!!! It was our first time holding a school-wide Read-a-Thon and the kids and staff had a great time and raised money for a great cause.

Craven Jaguars 8U

We love this fundraiser because it teaches our athletes that they are students first!

Northdale Middle School

This was a nice start for our first time in the middle school setting. We will do this again next fall when more kids are still checked in to their learning. I feel better results will occur next fall.

North Street Elementary

This Read-A-Thon went very well. Next year we hope to do much better and have more of our students and faculty participating. Thank you for all you do for those of us needing a way to raise funds!

I can't think of anything you can do to improve our experience but I have made a list of things I will do next time!

Virgil PTO

This is the 3rd year we have done the read-a-thon and the kids really enjoy it.

David Barton Elementary School

Thank you for this fabulous opportunity to easily raise money for our library. It was awesome!


Sgt. Smith Middle School

This was incredibly easy to set up, but difficult to bolster support at our school. I think it would have been more helpful to have something informational (about the actual procedure of the reading sessions) to tell parents and staff. We struggled to get that set up and could have used some guidance.

I think this was a learning experience and could see doing it again (very differently) in the future.

Leon Valley Christian Academy

In all honesty, this read-a-thon did not go well. I cannot come up with any particular reason other than lack of support in general. Hope next year will be better.

St. Bartholomew School

Read-A-Thon has been a great way to get students excited about Reading! In a short time we were able to raise a good bit of money for our school. This has been a great program that will benefit our school!

Stephanie Purcell

We loved doing this. It was a Great way to encourage reading at the same time as raising money. Everything was so easy.



This was a great fundraiser for my very small inclusive preschool! The Read-A-Thon staff were very helpful and easy to work with! Thank you all very much for your help in making this a very successful fundraiser for my school!

Hilltop Home and School Association

I think this fundraiser is amazing, just wish we were in a school that gave more support!

Your organization has been very professional, the materials that you provided are high quality. The staff was always friendly and helpful,any emails were answered quickly and efficiently.

Traughber Jr. High

It was great to promote reading at our school. Kids enjoyed it!

Traughber Jr. High

It was the easiest fundraiser we have done. It raised funds for our school library so we can buy new books for next year. We hope to get more students involved next year and raise even more funds to purchase materials for our school library.

Black Mountain Elementary

It was very easy and I would do it again.

North Ga. Homeschool Cooperative

Thank you for the platform to help us raise funds while engaging children in their reading adventures.

WPS 3rd Grade Eagles

This was such an AWESOME experience! We can't wait to do it again next year.

Jefferson School

Such a great program. I only wish I worked at a school that had families that could donate more and are more comfortable with online opportunities. Thank you for everything.

Craven Jaguars 10U

The read-a-thon was great for the kids! I wish we got more participation but overall this was a great experience!

Central Middle School

This fundraiser was a win-win. It promoted reading at our school and challenged our kids. They had fun and earned great prizes. The work involved to run this program was minimal (which was optimal for us!), and I will definitely do it again. Thanks,

BGCY Learning Tree Daycare

Great Experience! Awesome Resources and very helpful staff.

P.S. 81 Thaddeus Stevens Read-A-Thon 2016

A Read-A-Thon is an exciting experience, the students were very excited to participate in it. Although we did not get the support we anticipated, I would definitely do it again in the near future. I believe that this is an excellent opportunity to help students to improve their reading skills. Thank you very much for the support and guidance I received during the Read-A-Thon.

Harleysville Learning Center

It was amazing and we will definitely do this again!

Trinity School

This was our first experience with a read a thon. We tried it as an encouragement for summer reading. In the future we will do it in the school year where teachers can remind students daily.

Manara STEM Academy

Went pretty well!


Very good program. We will for sure repeat it next year.

Wewahitchka 8th Grade

The children loved the time to read.

Little Tots Montessori

Our first read-a-thon went very well. This one however struggled and I think it was because the uncertainty of our program in June. We have just found out today there will be no more uncertainty. YAY! So we will try another read-a-thon in the fall. Thank you!

Torah Academy of Jacksonville

Even though we are a small school we did ok. Last year was a huge success. We conclude that we will hold a read-a-thon every other year.

Stellar All Stars

This was the best program we have ever used.
