On Read Across America Day, we will kick-off our Read-A-Thon. This is a great way to get kids hooked on reading, engage in some friendly competition between classes, and win prizes, all while raising funds for Watchung School PTA! Watchung students will see how many minutes they can read–or be read to!–from March 2-23rd, and collect pledges to support their efforts.
Submit the reading logs and get your pledges in by sharing your child’s individual page on this MemberHub Link .
Watchung Free Read-A-Thon Library –We’re thrilled with the response of kids taking books home! Students can return, or keep the books. If they return it, we have a bin set up outside the N. Fullerton Street door that will be checked daily to restock the library.
Donate Books for Watchung Read-a-Thon
Watchung Read-a-Thon – donate books by 3/1
Donate your elementary school-aged books to help us create a Watchung Read-A-Thon Free Library! These books will be available for students to grab while walking through the front hallway, take home to read to boost their Read-A-Thon minutes, and return (if they like) for others to also enjoy.
A bin is located outside the N. Fullerton Street entrance (featured in 2nd picture). The bin has signs for K-2 and 3-5 to help with the sorting. Drop your books by Wednesday March 1st morning to give us time to sort for the March 2nd Read-A-Thon kickoff.
Thanks to Victoria Lloyd for helping to make this Watchung Free Library happen!

SAVE THE DATE! April 14 Spring Fundraiser
Watchung’s Spring Fundraiser
When: Friday April 14th 7-11pm | Where: 18 Label Studio
Mark your calendars for an epic Casino Night themed party! This is a vital way for us to strengthen our community and raise money to support the school’s upcoming Library & Media Center. Here are some ways you can get involved:
- Class-made Creations – each homeroom class will create an art project to auction off at this event. Each class can select 1-3 volunteers to run this project (it does not have to be time consuming and we already have great ideas for potential projects!). Reach out to your Class Parents if you’re interested.
- Donations needed for AUCTION: The majority of money raised at our upcoming spring fundraiser will be from the auction. We are soliciting donations from our generous Watchung community. Examples of past items have included tickets for the theater, sporting events, VIP tours, hotel/vacation house accommodations, a private chef, guided experiences and a high-end vacuum cleaner. Smaller items are also welcome and can be grouped together into larger auction packages. If you have something you would like to contribute or have a great idea, please let us know at email@example.com
