PTA Read-a-thonIn an effort to further improve family engagement in education while encouraging a love of reading, Mountain View & Mountain View's PTA have just kicked off the single biggest fundraiser of the year ~ a Read-a-thon!" Our goal is to raise $12,000 this year, and if everyone raises $35 we can do it!" This fundraiser will run from 9/16 - 10/4. It is easy to donate online to support your student:

- Click on “Sponsor a Student”
- Enter your student’s unique code– you received this in your green folder
- Alternatively, you can search your student’s full first name and select your student from the list.
- Students read (or are read to) 1 hour per day for 10 days during school
To donate with cash or check, use the pdf donation form. The money raised from the Read-a-Thon will be used for student and staff programs and services such as technology, special assemblies, after-school activities, author visits, supplementary classroom supplies, field trips, teacher grants, memorable family events like a Monster Mash dance and Spring Carnival!
Through the read-a-thon, students receive:
- Excellent reading practice
