Dragons love reading  what better way to raise money than a READ-A-THONOur school-wide goal is to read 70,000 total minutes & raise $7,000 to improve MPE's main library & stock classroom libraries. Our Read-a-thon officially kicks off on March 1! 

Will you help us reach our goal? Make a secure online donation by clicking the DONATE  button, then spread the word by sharing this page with family & friends! All Dragons will have DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) time at school so we can have 100% student participation. Teachers will log minutes with the PTA. Students who wish to log additional minutes at home can fill out weekly paper Read-a-thon logs and return them to school. Dragons will earn 2 Pride Points for every hour read outside of school! (Students can also download & print a sponsorship form to give to family & friends to request donations. Please return forms & cash/checks (made out to MPE PTA) to the main office in an envelope marked "Read-a-thon" by March 31.


PRINCIPAL'S CHALLENGE: If we reach our reading & fundraising goals, Principal Auerbach and other MPE staffers will do crazy stunts voted on by MPE's students! The winning stunts will be announced on April 10. Questions? Email us at
