Castleton Elementary School will once again be participating in the Read for Ronald McDonald Fundraiser this year! The reading-based community service program empowers students to develop lifelong reading skills while supporting children and families served by the Ronald McDonald House of the Capital Region.

Castleton Elementary School has raised over $13,000 in the past four years by participating in this program and kicked off this year’s edition today (March 1). Read for Ronald McDonald House runs through the entire month.
