Read-A-Thon

Bancroft's annual Read-A-Thon & Book Sale

Read something fun! Earn a prize! Raise donations that support student reading!

The annual Read-A-Thon is a two-week period when students track the number of minutes they read each day. They earn prizes if they reach milestones. And they can solicit donations based on how much they read from friends and family. Proceeds will purchase free books we distribute to all students later in the year.

When: Oct. 18-31

Where: Read at home, in school, anywhere you want!

How: Look for this Read-A-Thon form from your teacher.

Donations can also be sent directly to Bancroft PTO via our Give MN page. 


Purchase new books for Read-A-Thon at our Book Sale online and in-person!

During parent conferences Oct. 19-20, come to the Media Center to browse a selection of books from Moon Palace bookstore. Proceeds will go to the Bancroft PTO to fund teachers' requests for their classrooms that MPS doesn't cover. 

For families who do their conferences online, browse Moon Palace books and make a purchase at this link. Then go to Moon Palace (3032 Minnehaha Ave. Minneapolis MN 55406) for safe curbside pickup.
