Kreamer Street Elementary School students went on a Wild About Reading safari adventure as a celebration of the school’s annual Parents as Reading Partners event, held on March 4-19. 

Sponsored by the PTA, PARP encourages students to read an additional 15 minutes per day with a partner of choice, making this important life skill not only a school to home connection, but fun and informative as well. Kreamer Street students already log their daily reading as homework, but PARP is designed to make reading even more enticing and fun.

During the week there were safari-themed dress up days, entertaining school assemblies, a Scholastic Book Fair, a safari-themed Family Fun Night and guest readers. Each class also designed a colorful bulletin board to reflect this year’s theme. To celebrate all of the students’ hard work, Principal Sean Clark dressed up as a safari guide riding a giraffe to the delight of all the students.
