Frank Porter Graham hosts Read-a-thon night Jan. 25

Frank Porter Graham Elementary school will host its 14th annual Read-a-thon night on Jan. 25 to help encourage kids to read while also raising funds to support the school’s program.

FPG students have pledged to read 680,000 minutes in 14 days, and special guests including Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt, Carrboro Mayor Mark Chilton and former UNC basketball player Eric Montross will serve as readers.

The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Frank Porter Graham media center.

This year’s read-a-thon theme will be “Go Wild for Reading” and focus on the jungle.

The Read-a-thon will span from today to Feb.3, and all students will have a goal to read 100 minutes a day.
