Fundraiser Awards

The Pell Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and the students of Pell Elementary School are participating in a Read-a-Thon from Oct. 3–28. The students read books and gather donors to support their reading efforts. All funds raised will remain at Pell Elementary to support the students and faculty in educational and enrichment programs. This is the largest fundraiser planned for the year and the goal is $25,000 and 450,000 minutes read. The PTO is pleased to offer a fundraiser where the students take an active role and promote reading.
