Why Support the Read-A-Thon?

The PTA & SCEF Read-A-Thon serves as a vital fundraiser for SCEF, our non-profit education foundation. SCEF allocates funds to support crucial aspects of your child’s educational journey, including PTA initiatives, reduced class sizes, and various programs such as literacy, science, music, technology, arts, sports, and counseling. Your backing enables the PTA to sustain and enhance numerous programs and events at your school, ensuring that every child benefits.

What’s Our Target?

Our goal this year is to raise $150,000. A modest contribution of $50 from each participant can collectively help us achieve this target, with the added incentive of winning exciting prizes! Notably, Belmont has raised over $340,000 in their Read-A-Thon—can we surpass that achievement?

How to Register Your Reader?

Visit http://pledgestar.com/scef to register your reader. Share your reader’s pledge page with grandparents, family, friends, and anyone eager to support your child’s reading journey! Use your personal email address for registration; avoid using a school district email.


Effortless, Adorable, and Effective Pledge Requests!

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends are often willing donors when asked. PledgeStar simplifies and adds a touch of fun to the process. Parents input names and email addresses or text message numbers, and PledgeStar sends charming personalized pledge requests from the children. Over half of these requests result in generous donations.

Parents can also leverage social media platforms like Facebook for pledge requests. PledgeStar ensures a secure online donation process that directly contributes to the school’s account.

Register your child at http://pledgestar.com/scef, follow the straightforward steps, and set up your child’s fundraising page to request pledges. In addition to supporting a great cause, participants have the chance to win special prizes when requesting pledges.
