It could be Parents as Reading Partners, or People as Reading Partners, or Pick a Reading Partner. However you refer to it, PARP is always a hit at Susquehanna Valley's Francis P. Donnelly and Brookside Elementary Schools. PARP advisors called upon some musical assistance to kick off the program November 7 with this year's theme being Reading is Music to Our Ears! The Susquehanna Valley High School Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Mrs. Markstein, brought their instruments - and some of their favorite books - to the KICK OFF CELEBRATION. Several of the high schoolers - some of whom were once F.P.D. students - talked about their favorite children's books and gave away copies at random. PARP ran through November 22.
