Reading Power

Reading Power

January 15th kicks off the 17th Annual SchoolForce Reading Power Read-a-thon. Reading Power, our largest fundraising event of the year, encourages the love of reading and raises funds to support our schools. Last year during Reading Power, our kids read over 3,000,000 minutes and raised over $466,000 for BRSSD schools! See complete details and instructions on the Reading Power page.

Now in its 17th year, the Reading Power Read-a-thon is a fun two-week event that encourages the love of reading and directly involves all students in the district in fundraising for our schools. Students track the amount of time they read and donations from friends and extended family to raise money for their schools.

If you didn’t get a chance to donate, please consider donating now: schoolforce.org/donate.

Dental Professionals Continuing to Support SchoolForce

Though the Halloween Candy Buyback can't happen this year, the generous dental professionals who have sponsored the program in prior years are stepping up anyway! We are so fortunate that they have agreed to match their 2019 Candy Buyback donations to SchoolForce this year! Many thanks to Drs. Urmi Amin, Michael Chang, and Nancy Kaher. We appreciate their continued support of public education in Belmont-Redwood Shores.

Why are these funds needed?
Child with backpack
Prop. 13 dramatically changed the way California public schools are financed. Per-pupil spending in California once ranked among the top 5 states in the nation -- today we rank 47th. This adversely impacts our children and our economy.
