Reading 15 minutes each day with your children, strengthens reading and communication skills in our children.  

PARP is an acronym for Pick A Reading Partner. It is a program designed to engage and involve parents in the essential task of fostering the love of reading in children. Learning to read is the single most important activity in a child’s education. Studies have shown that children who read at home are better prepared to succeed in formal education. The primary objective of PARP is to engage and involve parents in the essential task of helping their children become life-long readers. PARP encourages parents to participate in some type of reading experience with their children for at least fifteen minutes a day, thereby instilling strong reading habits.
