Pick a Reading Partner - PARP

PARP '17

Prepare for liftoff as we to Blast off to Reading during PARP month!

Pick A Reading Partner - PARP is a PTA sponsored program designed to foster the love of reading through activities that encourage family members and others who play an important role in a child’s life to read with them daily, stressing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative. PARP initiatives help to reinforce what children have learned at school, instill strong reading habits, and help to create life-long readers.

During the month of March, Stewart, Stratford, Hemlock, Homestead and Locust Schools will participate in exciting events with the goal of increasing our children’s love of reading by showing how much others (peers, teachers, parents, and partners) love to read! See PARP Student Activities page to the left.

Be sure to visit the Garden City Library on Wednesday, March 1st, 4:00 - 5:00 pm PARP Pep Rally to celebrate the launching of Blast Off to Reading. Space is limited, so if you are interested, please register at GCPL_Events scroll down to March 1st events.

Return each week to the Garden City Library for a special PARP Raffle.

So grab a good book, fasten your seatbelts, and blast off to an exciting adventure in reading!
