The Kreamer Street PARP (Parents as Reading Partners) program will be running from Mon., March 3rd through Fri., March 21st. PARP is a statewide program designed to encourage children to read at home with their families for at least 15 minutes a day. Here at Kreamer all of our students have reading logs for their weekly homework and do a great job reading already. So, we are taking the time during PARP to make it even more fun and enticing to read and encourage them to go beyond the 15 minutes each night.

The theme this year is "Dive into Reading" and we have lots of fun events planned. There is something for the kids to look forward to everyday during PARP!
  • Crazy dress up days

  • Family Fun Ocean Night

  • Brookhaven Free Library is partnering up with us for PARP and will have ocean themed books out for our students in the children’s area.

  • We even have the Oceans Rock Program coming to do an assembly and hands on museum for all of the children!

  • On our last day, to celebrate all of the student’s hard work, Mr. Clark will be dressing up as an Ocean animal!

Attached you will find the Parent/Child Reading Contract and the Calendar of events. The Contracts are due back by Fri., Feb. 28th. Once we receive your returned contract, your child’s name will be placed on the PARP "Under the Sea" display. We hope to get every child on the display! Every child that returns their contract will be entered into a free raffle! We will be posting all the information in this packet in the virtual backpack.
