Read-a-thon Information: In the fall of 2018, PRM held its first ever Read-A-Thon! The Read-A-Thon is designed to reinforce good reading habits while raising funds to support the school.  

The 2021-2022 Read-a-thon will take place March 2nd through March 9th!

Pleasant Ridge Montessori is holding its 4th annual Read-a-thon!  The Read-a-thon reinforces good reading habits while also raising funds to support our school.  The PRM Read-a-thon will take place from Wednesday, March 2nd through Tuesday, March 8th.  Students are encouraged to read each day over this one-week period.  Students will track their reading throughout the week on their paper reading logs and can either turn in their paper log or can submit their reading minutes at the end of the week online at  Supporters, including family and friends, can make cash or check donations (turned in via reading log envelopes) or can make electronic donations online at the above website.

During this seven-day period, students will be able to earn multiple “reading rewards”.  Help PRM meet our goals of 100% reading participation, 20,000 minutes read and $10,000 raised!  Support your student(s) by reading them a favorite story, encouraging them to read and log their reading minutes, and by helping them ask family and/or friends for donations of support.  

This is our biggest fundraiser of the entire year!
