Henry does an annual fall Read-A-Thon to promote reading and to raise money for the school.
Reading Period Begins: October 11, 2017
Reading Period Ends: October 22 2017
Fundraising Ends: November 3, 2017

We hope that all students will challenge themselves to read at least 500 minutes – that’s about 40 minutes a day. Each student who makes the 500-minute goal will be recognized as a proud member of the Patrick Henry Reading Fleet! They get entered into a raffle for great prizes donated by our community and help to earn a schoolwide reading celebration.

The Read-A-Thon is also a great fundraiser for our school. We ask students to raise support in the form of pledges. To make fundraiser easier, we are using the website PledgeStar. Please go to

Students earn prizes for fundraising at the $25, $50, $75, $100, $200, $300, $400, and $500 levels.
