READ-A-THON - Oct 15-28


It's Bancroft's first-ever online Read-a-thon! 

  • STUDENTS: Read every day - especially during fall break - and write down your minutes on a calendar, in your notebook, or print out the log in the instructions. At the end, submit your totals using the google form in the instructions.  Earn prizes for your reading!
  • Ask your family and friends to support your reading with a donation!  Donations can be made online! Once there, the donor can click "Add a dedication" to enter the student's name.  Donations support Bancroft in providing the best learning opportunities.

Read-a-thon instructions and links

The Read-a-thon is a great way to encourage students to set a reading goal and to push themselves to meet that goal. Any time your child reads independently or the family reads together, counts toward their daily reading goal!

The second purpose of the Read-a-thon is to support the Bancroft PTO, which funds many things that benefit our school community.  Yor student can ask family and friends to support their hard work by pledging small donations.  They can now make donations online! Click here!

Help your children keep their reading log and encourage them to read every day!


El Maratón de Lectura motiva a los estudiantes a ponerse una meta de lectura y esforzarse a alcanzar esa meta.  Cuando su hija/hijo lee solo o con la familia, en cualquier idioma, esos minutos cuentan hacia la meta.

El otro propósito es apoyar a la PTO de Bancroft, que utiliza los fondos ayudar la comunidad escolar. Su estudiante puede pedir apoyo de familiares y amigos para su esfuerzo en forma de pequeñas donaciones. Ahora se puede hacer donaciones en línea!

Ayude a su estudiante a anotar su lectura en el sobre y ¡que lea cada día!
