Cougar Read-Athon

Event Date: March 19th, 2021

Charles Hay World School

We are kicking off a new school-wide Cougar Read-Athon on March 2nd, which by no coincidence is Dr. Seuss's birthday!

For the next few weeks, we’ll ask all Cougars to read for at least 10 minutes every day. You can track your progress on the official Read-Athon bookmark.

During the Read-Athon we will also be raising money to increase awareness of the importance of reading, diversify our library, support our teachers, and fund school-wide health and wellness.

We have a ton of rewards for you to earn including bag danglers, Dr. Seuss swag, and your very own copy of Oh, The Places You’ll Go.

If we can meet our school-wide fundraising goal, the top 5 students get to pie Mr. Palermo while the whole school watches. Even better, the top fundraiser will get to be Principal for a Day!
