PTO READ-A-THON IS COMING! 

We're going to dive into some great books with an ocean-themed event this year, Montrose at Sea: Read-a-Thon 2022! The same easy online format will be back + featuring fun, new prizes and incentives for both money raised and minutes read for students and classrooms. Be on the lookout for more information after winter break and for hard-copy packets to come home in backpacks in advance of the Tues. Jan. 18 kickoff. Mark your calendars for marine exploration + literacy + fun competition and fundraising for our beloved elementary. Let's make some waves, Montrose!

 

Contact PTO Read-a-thon Committee Co-chairs, Kasey Alexander, Jenni Kristoff, or Rachel Laing, with any questions, if you have ideas or suggestions, or if you'd like to volunteer for this fun event.
