Reading Jogs the Mind

The elementary school kicked off its three-week Pick a Reading Partner initiative with a schoolwide program on March 4.

During the PARP assembly, the students were encouraged to develop a lifelong love for reading and were told how they could earn individual and class prizes by reading with a partner every day for at least 15 minutes. To further the message, they were treated to the theatrical production “The Great Big Book Adventure,” staged by the CM Performing Arts Center of Oakdale.   

PARP aims to encourage reading outside the school day and provides incentives to students who complete a weekly reading log. This year’s school PARP theme is “Reading Jogs the Mind.”
