PS229 extends a heartfelt THANK YOU to our school community! We're incredibly proud of our readers and grateful for your support, which made our fundraiser a success. Our students had a wonderful time reading. We can't wait to host another Read-A-Thon next year!

Thanks again,


PS229 readers need to make sure to spend their prize money in the prize store. Any prize money not spent within 10 days after our Read-A-Thon ends will no longer be available. The prize store cannot be reopened once it is closed. All prizes will be shipped to the school.


Thanks so much,

Would you like to win an all-expense paid trip to Walt Disney Theme Park for your family? We'd love to make that dream come true!


Our school is holding a Read-A-Thon Fundraiser, and it's a fantastic opportunity for your child to raise money while enjoying their favorite books.


As a special bonus, any child who sends 10 text messages through their dashboard to promote our fundraiser will automatically be entered into a nationwide drawing for a magical trip for four to Walt Disney Theme Park.


We'll select one lucky winner each season from all the Read-A-Thons held during that season.
