Parents As Reading Partners
Parents As Reading Partners is a collaborative effort among parents, staff, and community to build a reading partnership between the home and the school. PARP programs encourage parents to read with their children for at least fifteen minutes per day. PARP is a program designed to foster the love of reading in children by asking parents to set aside fifteen minutes daily to read with their children.
Learning to read is the single most important activity in a child’s education. Studies show that children who read at home are better prepared to succeed in formal education. The Parents As Reading Partners program is aimed at involving parents in the essential task of helping their children become lifelong readers.
PARP is a successful volunteer effort that fortifies our children’s reading habits. It is important because it has helped to cement the necessary bond between the home and the school to foster the education process. Together, this effort will make our children more successful and their education more fruitful.
