HVS Bookworm Read-A-Thon

P.S. 59 The Harbor View School celebrates Read Across America Month 

In celebration of Read Across America month, our school will be participating in HVS Bookworm Read-A-Thon

All month long our students will be encouraged to read in school and at home and track their minutes read. Student’s are invited to bring books from home or borrow books from our classroom libraries. This event will benefit students in two ways: 

  • They will exercise their minds and improve their reading skills
  • The money they raise will provide additional field experiences and enrichment programs for our school. 

Please consider being one of our sponsors for this Read-A-Thon. 

  • The top two classes that receive the most donations will attend the Staten Island Ferry Hawks Educational Day and Baseball Game on May 25th! 
  • The top two classes that read the most minutes will receive an ICE CREAM Party in May 2023. 
  • Every student that reads at least 250 minutes  will receive a Reader’s Challenge Certificate! 

Registration for our Read-A-Thon is simple and easy (same site and login as Let’s Move! ).  Please help us by helping your child raise a minimum of $25.00 in donations.  That’s just five flat donations,(5 donors at $5.00 each). It’s that simple!
