We are very excited for the upcoming PARP events!  Parents As Reading Partners is a program that asks parents to read with their children. The daily activity of reading together strengthens reading and communication skills in the child and also strengthens the parent/child relationship.  Studies show that children who read at home are better prepared to succeed in formal education.  PARP cements the necessary bond between the home and the school to encourage love of reading in our children. 

PARP kicks off the week of January 29thth with a Reading Contest.  The lucky winners from each grade will enjoy Q&A and lunch with Sara Pennypacker!  Ms. Pennypacker is the author of seventeen children's books, including the New York Times bestselling Clementine series.  Her books have won numerous awards, including a Golden Kite Award and a Christopher’s Medal, many children’s choice state awards, and have appeared on many 'Best Books' lists.  Ms. Pennypacker will be presenting to students in grades 1 through 4 on Thursday, February 9th.

PARP will conclude with CET parent, Claire Hilbert’s, Library Expedition during the week of February 13th. Students will explore the CET library through various interactive activities. Claire is seeking a few additional book-loving parents to volunteer to help out with this year's Expedition.  They would need to be available to meet once or twice leading up to the event and to assist on the Library Expedition Tour from about 2:15-3:45 for one to three days during the week of Feb 13th.  Please contact her directly if interested:  cdhilbert@gmail.com.

Save your Box Tops and help the PTA raise funds! Through the program you can cut box tops from participating products and send them to school so we can redeem them for 10 cents each.  In the past we have raised over $1200 a year through box tops, and it would be great if we could exceed that this year.  Here is a  full list of participating products.  It is easy to help- simply cut box tops from participating products and send them to school in your child's folder, or drop them off in the pink and white collection mailbox located in the lobby of CET. Plus - here is a fun collection sheet - just tape or glue box tops to it. It is a great way to get your kids involved in the collection. If  you have any questions, please contact me at clook624@gmail.com.
