Help us raise money while promoting reading skills and education. View the details!

We will be starting on:


January 26th – February 7th

Registration Starts – Friday, January 24th
Read-a-Thon Goal – $20,000

OUR ANNUAL SCHOOL FUNDRAISING GOAL is to raise $100,000 from our 3 Key Fundraisers in the 2019-20 school year!

We are raising funds for the following projects!

  • Air Conditioning FINAL Phase
  • Mini STREAM LABS throughout the building.
  • Next Generation Education & Learning Programs
  • Fine Arts Studio
  • Sensory Resource Room
  • Tuition Assistance
  • Principal Programs

The list above outlines the projects we hope to accomplish this year to strengthen our school and enrich your child(ren’s) learning and experience. Angels Read & Give also funds the PTU student life programming.

ALL Read-A-Thon information will be provided to your student(s) on FRIDAY, JANUARY 24th.

We encourage every student to participate in our Read-A-Thon to help support our school. At school daily, students will read 10-15 minutes during morning time, library time or free time to achieve their daily minutes. Please encourage your students to read at home every night, too!  Make it a class activity by having class time and group reading by bringing out the books.

BE CREATIVE with your reading time!

Student SIGN UP!

It is easy to sign up a student.   Go to the website:

Log in under “Readers” and sign up. Enter the student’s personal code which the student will receive on Friday, January 24th. You do not need to use the social media tools provided but it is HIGHLY encouraged. You can email family or friends the link privately if you prefer. We also will take cash or check (Checks Payable to Saint Ambrose PTU) but we strongly encourage using the website.
