MSP Read-a-Thon

Student readers

MSP's library sponsored a Read-a-Thon from January 2 - April 2. All grade 6 & 7 students at MSP were invited to participate.  45 students took up the challenge. They asked parents to sponsor them for every book that they read. A total of 191 books were read, and a total of $536 was raised to jointly benefit Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s Hematology and Oncology department and Yale New Haven Hospital’s Closer To Free. The top 25 readers were rewarded with a well-deserved pizza party in the library on Friday, April 6 during Enrichment. Many thanks to the all of the participants for supporting kids all over Connecticut in their fight against cancer.
