Book it for Boone
September 8th - 24th

Sponsored by:


Book it for Boone kicks off Friday, September 8th and runs until Sunday, September 24th. This beloved fundraiser has two primary objectives - 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! Our theme this year is “Read, Dogs. Read!” inspired by P.D. Eastman’s beloved “Go, Dog. Go!” Expect a dog-themed adventure in reading starting with an all-school assembly on Friday sponsored by Breakthrough Dog Training who will put on a dog show for the school!

To make Readathon even more fun, mark your calendars for

Book Character Dress Up Day on Friday, September 15th!

And visit the Boone Book Fair all next week!

During Book it for Boone, each student has two goals: 
Raise $200
Read 15 minutes each day

We make it easy with our simple online platform, Pledgestar, where you can track your child's donations AND reading minutes.


Register your Student

Each student's goal is to read 240 minutes at home. 

Read at Home

  • Each student should read 240 minutes at home. That's 15 minutes per day! 

  • Read more than 240 minutes to be honored as a Pawsome Reader (see below).

  • Reading minutes for our youngest Bulldogs may include listening to a parent or sibling read, reading a picture book, or listening to an audio book. ALL READING COUNTS! 

Track your Reading

  • Each student should keep track of the minutes they read at home. Parents should record their student's reading minutes online at Pledgestar.

  • Minutes must be recorded online by Sunday, September 24th at 8 pm.
