PS150Q’s Read-a-Thon is a fundraising event that benefits the school with substantial profit while encouraging its students to do something good: read.

Rather than soliciting family, friends and neighbors to purchase a product in which the school only sees less than 50% of the funds, the Read-a-thon asks sponsors to pledge an amount for every minute/page/book the participant reads. There is very little overhead, which means PS150Q PTA gains more crucial funding to enhance the educational experience for all students in every grade.

The Read-a-thon generally takes place as the Spring fundraiser, from early February to mid-March.

Encourage your young reader and make a special “reading time.” Snuggle up with your favorite throw and dig into that novel, short story, newspaper or magazine article. Whether you read it together out loud or silent reading, it’s quality time that helps the school one delightful story at a time.

Every dollar earned by every minute of reading is worth more than one can imagine.
