Let's get to reading & raising for our California Cougars!

School bus with children-Explore more field trips printed on side of bus.

PTA is so excited to introduce a Read-A-Thon over the summer!
This Read-A-Thon will help raise money for field trips next year - so get your library card and a comfortable spot ready to go!


♦ Let's promote the benefits of reading.
♦ Share your student's successes and love of reading with family and friends.


An individual entry is required every time you read. When you read, write down the title of the book, chapter, pages read and the total number of minutes read! We cannot accept weekly or monthly logs. A parent/guardian must sign all logs at the bottom of each page.


Remember to visit your local Mesa Verde Library!

Our 2017/2018 Summer Read-A-Thon raised $7,600!
Let's start raising and reading!


All proceeds raised will go toward funding 2018/19 individual grade level field trips and educational assemblies.


See the attached flyer for more information, individual, grade-wide and school-wide incentives.
