2/3: Our 40th Annual Read-a-thon!

This is one of the children's most eagerly awaited events in the school year. Each year, with pillows, sleeping bags, reading tents, stuffed animals and book bags, Park Day kids turn their classrooms into the coziest reading spaces you can imagine. On this day, the entire school spends the whole school day (five hours) reading and celebrating the written word.
Each child is asked to obtain pledges from family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor them to Read for a Day. We invite you sponsor your favorite reader, a grade, or even a former teacher’s classroom with a pledge or donation by clicking the link below:
