The Stratford Road PTA PARP committee will be sponsoring a food drive in conjunction with Island Harvest, a Long Island food recovery program. We felt it would be appropriate to help our children become aware that while reading may be a piece of cake, food may not be as easy to come by for many families in our community.
During PARP, each day your child reads for at least 15 minutes, the next day please send your child in with a non-perishable food item (no glass containers, please). This will signify his or her reading accomplishments along with helping others in need.
The food drive begins on Tuesday, March 19th, and ends on Monday, March 25th. Boxes will be available in the main lobby each day for your child to drop off their donation.
