It’s time for PS 198’s Read-a-thon!

It’s a school-wide reading activity!  It’s a fundraiser! Most of all, it’s a way to encourage our students to read more. Throughout March, our students will focus their efforts on increasing their independent-reading time in classrooms as well as at home.

Please encourage and support them!

To start, help your child create a read-a-thon page by clicking  here (use the secret code your child will receive in class).

To track our school’s progress, click here.

For more details, check out our video, above!
