2nd Annual Read-A-Thon and Book Fair!

We will host our second annual Read-A-Thon AND Book Fair during February 28-March 4 - Read Across America Week. It will begin at 9am on Monday morning and end at 4pm on Friday. Tracking sheets will be sent home with students on Monday, to come back daily, and be turned in Friday.

Donate NOW!

How it Works:

Kindergarten-2nd grade will count and list the books they read. 1 book or 1 chapter = 5 minutes of reading time. 3-5th grade students will count minutes read. They will list the book title and total number of minutes read in a given session.


Parents or community members will have the opportunity to donate money by the minute or a flat donation of their choosing. All donations will be made online at (please share this link like crazy!). Parents are able to look up their individual student to donate. 10% of all donations go directly to your child's classroom!

 All other donations will go towards purchasing new technology for the school and needed literacy supplies!




Every student will receive a brand new book just for being at Belvidere and participating in the Read-A-Thon.


Making Goal:

All students will make a goal for the amount of reading during the week. If a student reaches their goal, they will receive a certificate, an ice cream at lunch, and a bookmark.
