As a culmination to its Parents As Reading Partners monthlong event, Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School hosted a PARP Night for students and their families.

Following the theme “A Minion Reasons to Read,” students, along with their family members, participated in a variety of reading and writing activities. To spark students’ creativity, the event kicked off with a read aloud that concluded with a cliffhanger. With the chance to win a prize, the young writers were encouraged to predict and create their own ending for the story.

During the evening, students and their families played board games that fostered reading skills, created a book jacket for their favorite book and colorfully decorated a cupcake to resemble a Minion.
