Support the Read for Richmond Read-A-Thon!

Read for Richmond is a fun way to encourage students to build their academic skills by reading every day. This year, Read for Richmond is also a Richmond PTA fundraiser that will raise money for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math and Music (STEAM) enrichment at Richmond through online pledges.


The Richmond PTA is proud to be a part of this exciting project that supports STEAM enrichment at school AND encourages our amazing young readers. Please support our students by making a pledge to Read for Richmond and sharing your student’s page with friends and family. Our fundraising goal this year is $25,000, or approximately $40 per student. If you are unable to donate, your child can still participate by tracking their reading and working toward their class reading goal!
