Get Ready for Our Spring Read A Thon, click here for details

Each fall and spring Clairemont holds a Read-a Thon where the goal is for your child to read or have as many minutes as possible read to them each day. Every day, the minutes from the day before are counted and the class from each grade that reads and participates the most will be announced to the whole school as the winner! The winning teachers in each grade will get the honor of wearing a special reading cape!


Our spring Read-a-Thon will start very soon! It begins on Saturday April 13th and continues through mintues read on Thursday April 18th! Your children will log their mintues on paper logs that you will recieve in your folders next week.


Read-a-Thon is also one of the biggest fundraisers for the PTA. Funds that are raised help support student activities, field trips, and fun upcoming community events such as Spring Carnival, Field Day, and more. Your child can ask family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor them to encourage them to read as much as possible during Read-a-Thon. Sponsors can choose to donate a flat amount or make a pledge to donate a certain amount for every minute read. If a sponsor pledges to donate per minute, at the end of the week your child can tell them how many minutes they read or had read to them and they can donate the final amount. Pledge sheets will come home after break. You can send your sponsors the link or QR below to make a donation, or donations can be made via check made out to "Clairemont Elementary PTA" that your child can bring to school to give to their teacher:
