Reading is a Journey...Explore and Discover!

Welcome to the Monkton Central School Read-a-thon blog!  Our read-a-thon theme, "Reading is a Journey...Explore and Discover!" continues our school's focus on each students' journey this year, connecting their journey posters with the idea that reading books can be a journey into our imaginations to explore and discover new worlds and new knowledge!  Students will be looking for sponsors to pledge money for the minutes they will read beginning Thursday, April 17th and will start their month long reading challenge from May 1-30th.

This blogsite is a way for students and parents to get more information (see the "About" and "Forms" tabs) as well as a well for all family, friends, community members, parents and students to see our journey through books.  We will be posting our classroom tallies, photos from special events like the author visit and Character Dress-up Day, as well as encouragement for students to keep on reading!

If you would like to Sponsor a child and pledge money towards the Read-a-Thon, please let your child's classroom teacher or Holly Esterline, school librarian, know.  If you are a community member and would like to Sponsor a child who might be in need of a Sponsor, please email Anna Lester at

We look forward to this important fundraiser that also is a celebration of reading!
