2018 Read-a-thon

What are we doing?

The Mountain Park Elementary PTA is excited to announce the annual fundraiser. This year we will be doing a Read-a-thon! We were very successful last year raising over $20,000!! We hope to continue that success this year.

The best part of the Read-a-thon is that our school gets 100% of the money collected!

We need all MPES families to participate in order to make this a huge success for our school and children!  Every little bit collected helps us do great things at our school.

When are we doing it?

The event will kick off with a pep rally on September 7, 2018, followed by the Read-a-thon on September 21.  All funds need to be submitted by September 28, 2018.

Thank you for supporting a fundraiser that helps us earn money that directly contributes to making our children’s education better!
