Reading Challenge / P.A.R.P.



What is Reading Challenge?

Every year, we do our best to encourage all students to meet New York State's reading recommendation of 25 books per year.  For some readers, 25 books seems like a lot, but it breaks down into only 6 books for the first three quarters and 7 books for the last quarter.  

To help inspire all of our students to read, read, read we plan various reading activities throughout the year.  As always, your child is encouraged to make use of our school and local library resources to help him or her find books of interest.

Please encourage your child to keep reading and to make sure they keep track of the books they have read. 

What is P.A.R.P.?

P.A.R.P. stands for Pick A Reading Partner.  The goal of P.A.R.P. is to increase the amount of reading in all of our students.  Another goal is to enxourage families to read more together!  P.A.R.P. will take place from January 21 - February 1.  During those two weeks students will see the building transform and will have exciting activities to do in school, as well as, at home with their families.  Our theme this year is The Kingdom of Read-a-Lot.
