Spring Break Readathon!

ReadathonLogoRaise money for the PS 32 Library by reading!

Over the spring break the only homework is to read! We are asking for people to sponsor students by donating $1 for every 30 minutes they read. If every student in the school was sponsored and read 30 minutes a day we could raise over $4,500! Help us to raise more by sponsoring a class or team! Money raised will be used to add materials to our collection and library programing. Flyers, sponsor sheets and reading logs are being sent home this week.  

Each class will be assigned to one of four teams (based on George O’Connor’s Olympians). The team that logs the most minutes read will win a pizza lunch in the library!
