PELC Read-A-Thon

How Your Support Will Help Us:

Last year's Read-A-Thon earned us enough money to help PELC purchase the new Book Vending Machine that has been utilized all school year and the new equipment that is being installed on both playgrounds this spring!! 

This year, we are hoping to raise money to fund a surplus of books to put in the hands of the students at PELC and in the classrooms. 

Our hope is to be able to raise enough money to make sure every student has a good book in their hands for this summer. Research has proven that reading over the summer promotes success into the next school year helping students retain information and key skills they learned the years prior.

The book vending machine books are steadily moving out at a rapid pace, which means more and more students are choosing their favorites to bring home, but we need to be able to fill the machine back up. 

Teachers also are in need of freshening up their classroom libraries.  Since COVID Scholastic classroom sales and the book fairs weren't able to help support classroom libraries as they have in the past.  

Stated best by famous author Tomie dePaola, "Reading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything."

Thank you for supporting your reader and the students at PELC giving them the tools to grow their imaginations and giving them the power of knowledge!
