Students at Woodhull Elementary School are spending the month of March celebrating Parents As Reading Partners (PARP).
This year's PARP theme is "Don't Bug Me, I'm Reading!" To kick off the program, students enjoyed a breakfast of bug-shaped pancakes and wore their pajamas to school.
Throughout the month, students and their families are encouraged to read
together nightly. As readers submit their recorded minutes, their
totals will be tallied and rewarded with prizes and activities.
In total, Woodhull students are aiming to log 13,000 minutes of reading in March.
Guest readers will be visiting the classrooms to share their favorite stories.
The bug-themed program will also incorporate science lessons, and students will conduct hands-on experiments on different living arthropods.
