Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School students took part in the Parents as Reading Partners’ Ride the Reading Wave celebration, which kicked off with an interactive assembly. Students made a pledge to read with parents at home every day.

Students participate in fun in-school activities, such as Guest Reader Day, during which guests visit the classrooms and read; Wear Red Day to honor reading every day; and Drop Everything and Read Day in which, students carry a book with them all day and stop to read when they were signaled at an undisclosed time.

PARP is a program that asks parents to read with their children for at least 15 minutes daily, stressing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative.
