Parents (and Guardians) As Reading Partners (PARP)
The following list of resources will support you and your young reader at home. We encourage you to practice reading with your child daily. Not only will daily practice will help support your growth as readers, it will create treasured memories between parents and children. Remember to visit your local library every week to keep your home well-stocked with books.

Parent / Guardian Volunteers
We welcome parents and guardians to volunteer in our school. We believe parents and guardians who participate in their child's development can be a positive influence on the growth of their children as active community members. We encourage our parent / guardian community to help our teachers and students with field trips, assit with events (student rewards programs), or regularly assit in classrooms and the library. Interested parties are asked to have a conversation with our administrators to discuss the placement that works best for you.
Dolly Parton's "Imagination Library" offered in partnership through Literacy Coalition of Onondaga County
Imagination Library provides free books for children age 0-5 for students who live in 13203, 13204, or 13208 zip codes only. Parents should visit onliteracy.org to register their child (click on "Free books for Kids" in the lower left hand corner) or ask our secretarial staff for a paper form to fill out. Please note that it takes two months to get the first book from Imagination Library to arrive and that parents are responsible for notifying the US Postal Service or the Literacy Coalition with a change of address.
