Great Job BSD!!


Our amazing student readers logged 777,244 minutes in just five days! 


Equally exciting is that their Read-a-thon supporters contributed a total of $218,028, an inspiring 45% over our goal! 


McKinley showed up on top in our School Team Challenge. Way to go Bulldogs! See final school results here.


This is amazing news for our children who will benefit from every dollar contributed during Read-a-thon. Our fundraising success would not have been possible without YOU! If you missed out on the excitement, there’s still time to support Read-a-thon, click here to contribute. 


Congratulations to our lucky prize drawing iPad winners!
