#1 The first goal of our annual fundraising event, with an immediate payoff, is to let children read for an entire weekend. Each year we set a goal for the whole school to log 120,000 pages during that time. We look for readers from around the world!
Great funds raised each year!
#2 The second, a short-term goal, is to raise funds for use each year to cover mission-important needs that our kids' Readathon Team selects.
#3 The third goal of our Readathon is to connect to our community. This is part of the long-term health and stability of the school. Connections with our community help us sustain and grow AcademyACL to its full potential. We built this school from its foundation with parents and educators working together, and it needs community connections to continue to grow in its vision and mission. Each new sponsor is one new connection!
We appreciate the work of our students, our families, and our community, with great reading and great connections. Everyone working together enables this to be a great place for kids to learn and grow.
Please see our Partners and Leaders (PALs) page for the businesses who have supported us.

10 sponsors for $10 each, and two new challenges below. You can do it.
In 2014 our students raised over $23,000. In 2015, our students raised over $26,000 plus they collected many generous donations for event supplies and prizes. In 2016 they raised over $28,000, and in 2017 they raised over $27,000!
We invite each student to find at least 10 sponsors for at least $10 each!
We use our regular Per Pupil Revenue (PPR) from the state of Colorado to fund mission critical needs that allow our students to meet and exceed Colorado Academic Standards. We use Readathon Funds for mission important items that enhance and extend our capabilities for students.
The Director's Challenge
Teachers and students give our Academy Director a challenge each year. In 2015, she had to Read on the Roof of the School if they raised $10,000 by Wednesday, September 30, 2015... and they raised over $17,000. She had to climb a ladder (the fire department came out to help) and read on the roof of the school all day... and Division III sent Ms. Brown up there with her. It rained that day. All day, misty rain. Hot tea helped. And the knowledge that the kids were having a great time helped them survive the day. In 2016, she had to Read on the Back of a Horse if they raised $20,000 by Wednesday night. They raised $20,100... and thankfully, Chuck the Rodeo Pony was very sweet and patient as she read on his back "Son of the Black Stallion" and walked him over the school grounds for three hours. (Chuck loved the kids, too!)
In 2017, Mrs. Myers had to Read in a Pool at School if students raise $12,000 by midnight on September 27th. Someone has suggested a dunk tank... and they did it! They raised enough to make her read in a cold dunk tank outside.
In 2018, Mrs. Myers had to Read on Rollerskates if they raised $15,000 by midnight.
In 2019, Mrs. Myers had to "Read with a Zoo" when they raised $15,500 by midnight, October 2, 2019.
In 2020-Spring2021, Mrs. Myers was challenged to Read with a Bobcat.Alas, that goal was not made, and she was off the hook...
In 2021, Mrs. Myers had to "Read in a Time Machine" when they raised $5,500 by midnight, September 30, 2021.
To see how the Time Machine Reading of 2021 occurred, visit the video evidence, here!
It's an ambitious goal each year!
Community connections: Tell sponsors about our school!
Connections with our community help us sustain and grow AcademyACL to its potential. We built this school from its foundation with parents and educators, and it needs community connections to continue to grow in its vision and mission. Each new sponsor is one new connection!
We appreciate the work of our students with great reading and great connections, our families and our community. Everyone worked so hard together to support our school!
