Read-a-Thon Happening NOW – READ, READ, READ!

Lowrie Primary PTA is proud to bring you Lowrie Primary School’s Read-A-Thon 2024! A Read-A-Thon is a fundraiser that challenges students to read as much as they can within a certain timeframe, all while directly supporting our school. The money raised sustains PTA funded initiatives such as free school events for all families, funds for classroom supplies for our amazing teachers (including PE and Music and support teachers), 5th grade graduation and celebration, meals for teachers during Parent/Teacher conferences, field trips like Biz Town, outdoor improvements and free books for students each and every year. 

Here’s how it works:

•Students will read as many minutes as they can between February 20th – March 15th.
•Students or parents will log reading minutes into the students reading tracker on their participant pledge page
•Students will seek pledges from family and friends to donate for every minute they read, or make a flat donation via online fundraising.

We are excited to streamline our fundraiser by going online with 99Pledges. You will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, text messaging, and social media. 

Students will receive awesome prizes & incentives for participating in the Read-A-Thon!

150 Reading Minutes: Read-A-Thon Water Bottle Sticker
300 Reading Minutes: Scented Bookmark
