PS 98 Read A Thon 

P. S. 98 will be participating in a Read-a-Thon!  We are hoping that this will get our students excited to read over the break and beyond!  A flyer went home on Monday that has a specific class code and instructions on how to create an account.   


In addition to reading great books, having sponsors for your child's reading will also fundraise money for our school.  Every child who participates in the Read-a-Thon will receive a small gift and our top fundraisers and readers will receive an even bigger prize (TBD).  The Read-a-Thon began on Monday, April 15th and will end on Friday, May 3rd.  Happy Reading!  


Student Council

Our next School Spirit Day is Star Wars day on Friday, May 3.  Go to the link below.
