Across the district, buildings are celebrating PARP, or Pick a Reading Partner. This year’s PARP theme at Hiawatha Elementary School was “Chill Out and Read!” Collectively, Hiawatha students read 70,313 minutes during a two-week span. Mrs. Smith’s class had the highest percentage of readers and as a result had the opportunity to pie the principal. Principal Joseph Watson dressed as a penguin to match this year’s theme and “got pied” in front of the entire school.

At Wenonah Elementary School, PARP kicked off with a fun-filled show from the Harlem Wizards. At the end of the PARP program, the basketball-themed celebration continued with an outdoor basketball game featuring teams of Wenonah teachers.
