Mercer Read-A-Thon
#MercerGrowsReaders #Mercer Reads
 
March 19 - March 25, 2021

 

The Mercer Read-A-Thon is designed to encourage our students to read, build excitement about reading and literacy, build community and raise funds for the Mercer PTO. 100% of the money collected will be used by the Mercer PTO to support both our students and teachers in new and creative ways. We know that school looks very different this year. Funds raised from Mercer’s Read-A-Thon will support teacher grants to enhance your student’s learning experience, educational enrichment opportunities including virtual field trips, and community building activities.

 

We encourage donations to be made online. Cash and checks (made payable to Mercer PTO) are also accepted. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
