READ-A-THON ENDS TODAY

Today, Friday, January 26, your young reader will record his or her last day's reading for the 2018 PS 154 Read-A-Thon. Congratulations to all for the effort and achievement!

What's next? Please add up the number of minutes that the student has read and mark it at the bottom of the reading log. Collect the money from sponsors and return it with the completed reading log and pledge form to your child's teacher in a sealed envelope clearly marked “READ-A-THON” with the student’s name, teacher and class number on the envelope by Thursday, February 1. Sponsors can also donate online.

Stay tuned for winners to be announced on Friday, February 9! Each child that reads the most in his or her grade will get a gift certificate to Terrace Books, and each grade's class that collectively read the most will get a special reading session with our own Principal Buckley.

Thank you to all PS 154 families for assisting your children with this wonderful fundraiser and community event.
