September 9th - 25th
We are excited to be celebrating our third year of Book it for Boone! 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 the timeless classic Charlotte's Web. Expect a farm-filled adventure in reading! The fun begins this Friday, September 9th and runs until Sunday, September 25th.
During Book it for Boone, each student has two goals:
Each student's goal is to raise $200 in donations!

All donations are due by Sunday, September 25th at 8 pm.
Each student's goal is to read 240 minutes at home. That's only 15 minutes each day!
