BCE Read-a-thon

CONGRATULATIONS BSD, we hit our goal!!

Your amazing student readers logged 1,061,061 Million minutes in just 7 days

and together raised $160,445!

Please note the iPad drawing winners will be posted here once the winners are announced at each school so please keep checking back.

Good luck!


Not only does the BCE Read-a-thon encourage students to increase their time spent reading, but it is a way to bring the kids into the conversation and gives them the opportunity to be directly involved in their education. BCE allows us to do some wonderful things in all of our schools, but we could not do this without the support of this community.


We wanted to take a moment to thank all of the student readers for their effort and all of the parents, siblings, friends and extended family far and wide for sponsoring and supporting their students - we couldn't have done it without you!


And, of course, a HUGE thank you to our awesome BCE Read-a-thon volunteers, our teachers, principals and librarians without whom this event would not be possible. Our Read-a-thon reps at each school created fun, engaging and exciting events and activities for the kids each and every day of the Read-a-thon! You guys are amazing!
