Read-A-Thon

Blackberry Creek Elementary School’s Pop Open a Good Book Read-A-Thon

Blackberry Creek PTO is proud to announce our first Read-A-Thon Fundraiser!

We want all of our students to develop a love of reading for pleasure, for knowledge, and for adventure. This NEW fundraiser will not only support our school but also supports each student’s personal reading development goal.


How It Works:
Every day beginning Friday, February 25 through Sunday, March 13 students will earn money by reading books. Students will receive pledges from family and friends to support their efforts.

What Counts?

The Read-a-thon is a super fun event and an opportunity to teach our kids about how each of us can make a difference.
