Whether it is a riveting tale of adventure or an exploration of ways to clean up oceans or an impactful true story of God’s work in someone’s life, when we read, we learn. When we learn, we change. When we change, we can help bring change elsewhere.

Read For Change is an opportunity for students to set personal reading goals and set aside time to learn and grow, while raising funds for the areas we support as a school. Once you’ve set your goal you can invite friends and family to support you financially. As you hit fundraising milestones, you are able to win some pretty great prizes along the way!
