It’s a week-long fundraiser that promotes literacy, inspires excitement about reading, and helps fund our students’ education.


Students seek sponsorships for a reading marathon to benefit BCE and compete for classroom and individual prizes awarded for the most minutes read!  Be on the lookout for your student’s Read-a-thon envelope and get ready to help your student to track all minutes read outside of class. All donations are tax-deductible and will be counted as part of your annual contribution to BCE.

STUDENTS:  Track your minutes here.

DONORS:  Make your donations to Read-a-thon here!  Thank you!
