Pearl City, Illinois — This year your Pearl City PTO is trying a new fundraiser that has been wildly successful in several other schools. Like them, Pearl City hopes the Read-A-Thon will become a main fundraiser replacing the need for multiple brochure fundraisers. The best part of the Read-A-Thon is that 100% of the money collected will be used at Pearl City school for our children. Pearl City Schools said they would like to purchase a classroom Chromebook cart for their students to use.
Students participated in the READ A THON on October 20th. Classrooms took turns reading throughout the day.
Celebrity readers from the football, volleyball, Golf teams and Drama and Publications Clubs read to students in the Reading Room. Students were asked to collect pledges to raise money for the school. Pearl City says they had many donations, some coming from as far away as California.
They are still accepting donations and they can be sent to the school. Pearl City Schools raised $3657.40 towards our goal of $7000.00 to help PTO purchase a Chromebook classroom set and cart.
Again, additional donations will always be accepted. The school will also work on other fundraisers to reach their goal.
