Read Around the World: Read-a-Thon Begins January 17 and runs through January 31
Posted 1/13/20

Reading Power is a fun two-week event that encourages the love of reading and raises money for your school. Students log the amount of time they read and collect donations from friends and extended family to raise money for your school through SchoolForce, the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public Schools Foundation.


Last year, Belmont-Redwood Shores students read 2.7 million minutes to raise over $429,000 to support their schools! Money raised during Reading Power benefits EVERY student in our school district by funding staff and educational programming which are essential to your child's educational experience.


Watch for your student's Reading Power Packet which will come home this Friday, January 17th. The packet includes instructions, information about reading fun during the next two weeks and prizes too!


NEW THIS YEAR - you are able to create your child's very own fundraising page to share with friends and family.
