SEPT. 11-24, 2020

We are excited to be celebrating our inagural year of Book it for Boone! This fundraiser has two primary goals - to foster a love of reading in our students and to raise critical funds to support Boone and the amazing programs paid for by the PTO. Let's make it a great first year! Our theme is Charlie & The Chocolate Factory: it will be a sweet adventure in reading!


GOAL FOR EACH STUDENT: Raise $150 in pledges

Register your student

GOAL FOR EACH STUDENT: Read 15 home sessions (1 session = 15 minutes of reading)

Read at home

  • Students set a goal of reading 15 sessions at home
