READ-A-THON Update: Character Dress Up Day Rescheduled to March 22nd

Greetings PTA families:

We hope all of you stayed safe in today’s blustery wind storm!
Due to the school closure today, we have rescheduled the READ-A-THON‘s Character Dress Up Day to Thursday, March 22nd. This is the last day of the READ-A-THON and it’s also BMES’ Reading Night!
Students are encouraged to come to school and reading night dressed as their favorite book character. Remember that costumes should be in good taste (nothing scary or ghoulish). No masks and no toy weapons.
Have fun and read, read, read…

We kicked off the start of the READ-A-THON today at a school-wide assembly! The PTA members explained what the READ-A-THON is, what minutes count, and what prizes can be won. PTA members even dressed up as book characters to get the students excited for Character Dress Up Day!

Students watched two short videos during the assembly. They can be found here:

READ-A-THON packets should have gone home yesterday in the Wednesday folder. Packets contain the rules, prizes, minute recording sheet, and sponsorship forms. If you didn’t receive a copy, you can print it here:


Get ready, get set, get READING!!!
