Someday, we’ll find it…
“The Reading Connection:
The Readers, The Dreamers, and Me”
In a year in which almost everything seemed cancelled, the Garden City PTA is delighted to announce that reading is NOT! Our popular annual reading program, Pick A Reading Partner (PARP) is happening this November and will be 100% VIRTUAL! During this time of social distancing, when some of us may feel disconnected from the things we enjoy, we invite all students in Grades K-5 to discover “The Reading Connection” through reimagined favorite events, including virtual author visits, raffles, themed Family Connect Nights, special programming and read-aloud with the Garden City Public Library, and- of course!- reading minute tallying and a little friendly competition! We can’t promise extra recess for the winning classes this year, but we can promise fun, a sense of community, and a little dose of normalcy.
If you’re interested in volunteering on this year’s PARP Committee, please contact Erin Debrich and Colleen Ciullo at email@example.com
PARP is a National PTA program designed to foster the love of reading. The primary goal of PARP is to promote childhood literacy by asking parents or caregivers to set aside time each day to read with their child. PARP encourages programs during the school year that supports reading and participation of children, caregivers, teachers, administrators, school staff and the community by reinforcing the pursuit of reading for enjoyment.
The committee works closely with building administrators and teachers in our K-5 schools. This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and School Building Representatives.
