We raised $14,660!

THANK YOU to everyone who participated and donated!

We are excited to bring back the Read-a-Thon to Tualatin Elementary. This is a participation based event encouraging students to build literacy skills while raising funds for our school.

Students collect donations by gathering a flat pledge amount, and then log minutes read and complete in class activities. Proceeds from the Read-A-Thon go directly to school programs for student enrichment such as field trips, ArtLit, library books, and more!
