Tips for Parents
Share reading outloud with your children. Take turns reading paragraphs, sentences, or even whole books.

Our Thanks to Everyone

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Weinstein, Ms. Ruthkowski and all the teachers of the Stratford Road School. Without their participation, PARP 2005 could never be the success that it is. An extra special thank you goes to our PTA committee members for their tireless efforts and to the many volunteers who contributed their time to make PARP 2005 happen.

We extend our special thanks to the following staff who assisted us in planning the PARP program activities:

Ms. Heather Bowers Ms. Carol Briguglio Ms. Dee Dee Edwards
Ms. Jodi Horowitz Ms. Joanne Levy Mr. George Manolakes
Ms. Judy Montana Ms. Judy Rosenthal Ms. Jane Ruthkowski
Ms. Gail Weinstein Debbie Mittleman  

Reading is important to your child's future. Together we can help establish good reading habits that last a lifetime. At this time, we would also like to thank the following organizations for their generous support this year:

  • BigNoseBird.Com, Inc.
  • Trio Hardware
  • Friends of the National Zoo
  • World Wildlife Federation
  • The Wildlife Conservation Society
We invited several community leaders and people of different occupations from around town to read to our children on Guest Reader Day. Special thanks goes to those readers for taking the time from their busy schedules to read to our students.

Our thanks to all the reading partners at home. Once PARP is officially over, we encourage you to continue reading with your child every day!
